Days 98-99: We headed south of Auckland to a tiny farm out in the countryside. The reason? I’d met a chap in a bar in Singapore and he’d told me I must go and stay with a lovely couple called Helen and Chris to experience some real NZ hospitality.
At Chris and Helen’s place, we were not only spoilt rotten with delicious food and copious amounts of beer and wine, we were treated like VIP guests and couldn’t have asked for a nicer experience.
Not only that, they gave us use of their garage and tools in order to give our little car – Agatha – a makeover and make it into our new home for the next 12 months… at least.
