Camping with black sand and Wireless...

Times changes, camping changes as well...In Raglan Holiday Park one can surf the Internet in, next and around the camper (as I did too:). There are also more garbage (recycling-related) separation than in NL: around 6 different bins, I am impressed. There is something about camping I never got. One morning u wake up angry with the crying babies and screaming kinds next door, some hours later u think amping is not so bad: the neighbours the other side went fishing and give u fresh fish (gurnard) for dinner:)

We spent the last 2 days in the quiet and cozy village Raglan on the West coast (100km south of Auckland). Delicious fresh fish (+some fresh sushi for Jana), plenty of wind for Nico (+kitesurfing) and some lovely sunsets in the evening. This afternoon we will head to the middle of the North Island (Rotorua), which is a geothermal area and famous for mud baths, geyser and other natural wonders.

Looks lovely, her weather got warmer - 4 degrees. For the rest, work, problems, traffic jam - normal haotic life as usual. On top of it I had the good luck to cut myself deeply and got glued by EPO nurse. Reminded me that is never too late to stay childish in any way.....Is boring around and I am surrounded by same people .... Ronan sent greetings to Nico. Javor got promoted - yesterday we had a drink...All same boring days...So try to get mots ot NZ and sun there, kisses and hugs Tony
