>In Paihia, we took some kayaks to one of the hundreds of islands (hence the name Bay of Islands) and went collecting mussels.
Throwing them on the barbecue, Mojdeh had a pasta with mussels, clams and veggies. I stuck to the veggies.
We have come to the small town of Kerikeri for tomorrow’s half marathon. After that, the plan is to hitch back to Auckland.
Today was our first day where the weather feels like summer. This is our tent by the river.
