Torbay is on the Northshore of Auckland about 20 minutes out of the city. Gorgeous beaches surround Auckland with its array of bays taking up the coastline.
So, the plan is to travel around in little camper that we have bought and see where the next 5 months takes us... Whilst finding our feet in New Zealand we took in the sights of Piha, a black sand beach on the West Coast, and had a tour of the bays, Browns Bay (closest at a 10 minute walk), Long Bay, Mairangi Bay, Murrays Bay and Waiake Bay.
We also spent a day in Auckland City, seeing the sights and meeting a friend from home who was sadly at the end of her trip.
