Tauranga

It’s been 3 months since we moved to Auckland in New Zealand and finished our Skippy expedition in Australia, yet we haven’t seen much of NZ and our traveller souls were suffering. ๐Ÿ™‚

Uz to jsou 3 mesice co jsme se presunuli do Aucklandu na Novem Zelandu a ukoncili nasi Klokanni expedici v Australii a presto jsme jeste toho moc ze Zelandu nevideli a nase cestovatelsky dusicky zacaly trpet. ๐Ÿ™‚



When we had travelled around Australia last year we met an interesting guy named Billy. We met Billy at parking lot in Gold coast and talked for hours. We ended up exchanging contact details including his address in NZ close to Tauranga!!

And here we go, 7 months later, Billy is back home from AUS and we’re coming to visit him and his whole family! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tauranga is about 200km down from Auckland and it’s the most popular city in Bay of Plenty region. We didn’t care much about planning our 2 days over there. The main thing was to see Billy, have a little break from work and getting away from Auckland.

It’s nice to bee on the road again ๐Ÿ™‚

After nice warm family welcome and good deep sleep we woke up just in time to watch sunrise. From their living room! Check out the gallery to see what we’ve seen ๐Ÿ™‚ We couln’t wish for better start of the day and clearer weather.

We spent our first day climbing Mt Maunganui and walking around Tauranga with one czech couple Radka met at gym. The whole area reminded us of Sunshine coast in Australia a lot! We enjoyed beautiful views and beaches and nice cafe strip. These things are not so common in Auckland!

On top of the world ๐Ÿ™‚

We made some czech food for Billy’s family to taste in the evening and it was a great success and a good finish of the day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Next day was Billy’s day off and we exchanged couple of recipes, learned more about their organic garden and life style and visited beautiful waterfall which is just few minutes walk from their house. Amazing!

We felt truly inspired by Billy’s family and didn’t wanna go back to Auckland at all ๐Ÿ™‚ We’ll definitely come back ๐Ÿ™‚

Minuly rok jsme behem nasi cesty kolem Australie narazili na zajimavyho typka co se jmenuje Billy. Potkali jsme se s nim na Gold coastu na parkovisti a na par hodin jsme se zakecali. Loucili jsme se s vymenenejma kontaktama vcetne jeho Novozelandsky adresy kousek od Taurangy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Nyni, o 7 mesicu pozdeji jsme zjistili, ze se Billy vratil domu, na NZ byl dlouhej vikend a tak nam nic nebranilo podivat se za nim a jeho celou rodinou!

Tauranga lezi cca 200km pod Aucklandem a je to nejpopularnejsi mesto v Bay od Plenty regionu. Nic moc jsme o tom nezjistovali, hlavni pro nas bylo videt se s Billym, vypadnout z mesta a nejaky ty rutiny a odpocinout si od prace.

Po peknym rodinnym privitani a hlubokym spanku jsme se probudili prave vcas na vychod slunce. A co vic si prat, sledujem to primo z obyvaku!! Kouknete se do galerky protoze takova krasa se hned tak nevidi ๐Ÿ™‚ Nemohli jsme si prat lepsi zacatek dne a lepsi pocasi.

Vecer travime zpatky v rodine – udelali jsme par bramboraku na ochutnani a jako hlavni chod jsou Vojtovy halusky. A povedly se! Hrnec se svarakem se taky rychle vypari a my jsme zahrnuti komplimentama ๐Ÿ™‚ Rodinu dost zaujaly halusky a bryndza, kterou si tu vyrabime z ovci a kozi fety a kefirem ๐Ÿ™‚

Dalsi den ma Billy volno a tak jsme s nim – vyrabime spolecne kokosovy maslo a on nas na oplatku uci jak vyrabi kokosovej yogurt. Ukazuje nam okoli vcetne sousedovic vodopadu a dava nam spoustu “zalesackych” tipu a triku!
