Place 68 – Day 2: Kerikeri – Housekeeping & Already Moving!

We were up at 08:00 this morning to have breakfast and coffee so we were ready for a 09:00 start.

Today was a heavy checkout day, so it meant that 6 rooms needed to be cleaned. These rooms are both studio apartments and also cottages.

We were joined by Laura, a Mexican girl who is lovely and also informative. She helped us get to know where things are and how things should be done.

Us three cleaned the 4 cottages whilst another person cleaned the studio apartments.

We stopped for a break at 12:00 and had coffee with some delicious cookies.

We finished our break and had just a few things to do, so we completed them and then it was shower time.

Once we showered, we jumped in the car and drove a bit further out of Kerikeri to another place we would potentially helpX, just to check it out.

This place is beautiful! It is a house with a stunning view. We will be doing some gardening, waterblasting both the house and the floor as well as some other tasks. This is a phase owned by a lovely Irish lady and her family.

We loved our brief visit so we will be finishing up here today. It just doesn’t feel right and isn’t really what we want to be spending our time doing, so we are off tomorrow, after doing our hours in the morning.

These things are always fun!

We got back, had some chicken pesto pasta and watched some TV before bed.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
