We’ve bought a camper van! It was surprisingly easy and, not wanting to tempt fate, but I reckon we’ve got a good un. It’s a toyota ‘town ace’, is pretty simple with just a mattress in the back, but has a stereo and some very funky skylights too. It has been monikered ‘The Silver Bullet’, a fitting title for a 20 year old van I’m sure you’ll agree! Pictures to follow once we’ve found an internet cafe that will let us upload photos.

Anyway, now that we have wheels we’re going to hit the dusty road and high-tail it out of Auckland and head for the hills. Auckland itself is a largely unspectacular achitectural mish-mash of mostly unispiring buildings, however the coffee here is awesome and the people very friendly. We’re looking forward to getting down to seeing some of the ‘real’ New Zealand now.
ta-ta for now, the dusty road beckons! [ed- Sev. I’m hoping that the van will kill vampires.]
