Place 68 – Day 1: Kerikeri 🇳🇿 – False Alarm, Pigs & HelpX Again!

We were up at a decent time to call a few garages to get them to have a look at our car.

Most garages were full, but Josh & Danielle were able to suggest a great garage for us who weren’t full either!

We arrived at the garage and the guy was really nice. He was able to do the diagnostics on the car and told us what the issue was. Luckily, it seems to be a false alarm, so we were able to go on our way with no worries.

We got back in the car, in the rain, and drove to McDonald’s to get a spot of brekkie.

We then drove 3.5 hours up north to Kerikeri, which is quite far up north.

We got to Kerikeri and spoke to the receptionist who was lovely and got us settled in and gave us a tour.

We are sleeping in a cabin with another person, but we are in our own room.

We went to the shop to get our food for a week which is just 1 minute down the road.

Once we got back home, we had a chat with another helper here for a while and then had a walk around the land here. There are some pigs here, too, who were very happy to see us!

We also saw some sheep/goats (we aren’t sure yet).

We walked back and made some dinner. We had chicken pesto pasta…throwing it back to the old-school traveling days.

We sat and watched some TV and went to bed at a good time so we are awake tomorrow morning when we get up to do some work here at the resort.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
