A WHV in New Zealand

A year in New Zealand

ALL THE ROADS LEAD TO AUCKLAND...

ALL THE ROADS LEAD TO AUCKLAND...

The countdown has started. I have a little bit more of two weeks left here in New Zealand. This is the end of my last road trip, I’m leaving Flo for good this time.

We’re in Auckland. Auckland all over again. Auckland, my city of arrival. Auckland, the city of unforgettable encounters. Rainy Auckland, boring Auckland. You’ve seen nothing of New Zealand if you’re staying in Auckland, and yet, while travelling North Island, Auckland is where all the roads are leading to. I’m leaving Auckland with relief every time and yet I keep coming back there.

MY LAST NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP -PART 1-

MY LAST NEW ZEALAND ROAD TRIP -PART 1-

Today is Wednesday and my heart is heavy while I’m leaving South Island for good. I land at Auckland airport like I did on my very first day in New Zealand, except that now Monster is lighter and that I know exactly where to go to catch a coach towards the city centre. It’s raining outside and the sky is grey. I only have one month left on North Island before leaving the country for good. Ouch. Same for Flo, aka Monsieur Wellington, who’s having only two weeks left here before flying to Hong Kong and then going back to France. That’s why we’re meeting up again, for our very last road trip in New Zealand.

Derniers jours sur l’Île du Sud…!

Derniers jours sur l’Île du Sud…!

Martha et moi quittons Tekapo en stop. Un couple de colombiens nous embarque pour Christchurch. Ils étudient l’anglais ici et comptent s’installer en Nouvelle Zélande. Alors qu’ils nous parlent des spécialités culinaires de Colombie, je salive sur la banquette arrière. Mon avion décolle dans 5 jours depuis Christchurch et je prévois de faire une escapade à Kaikoura et une autre à Akaroa.
