Finally …

After nearly five months of dragging our feet (and saving up money), we have finally bought a car!

It’s a Subaru Legacy with all-wheel drive for the tougher NZ roads, a roof rack, and enough room in the back to sleep if we were really desperate. Since it is green and Japanese its name is, of course, Godzilla.

Now that we have reliable, not-public transportation, we’ll hopefully be taking lots of weekend trips in the near future! First up will be the west coast beaches of Auckland, which have black sand and are much rougher than the dinky local beaches like St. Helier’s, or even the east coast beaches in the Bay of Plenty and Whakatane. Stay tuned!
