[#fly2NZ] New Zealand Day 16


Leaving our 9th airbnb. I’m glad Angela and Greg has been really lovely and sharing us some farm tips, we also get to see the silly cute billy that is just 4 months old. It’s been a great 2 nights stay with them. We got all our laundry done, have great sleep because of the comfy room with great views.

Oh yeah, the sun is out! It’s one of the most sunny days throughout the entire trip. I’m glad I packed 2 set of sport wears so I could wear one of them today! Phew :)

Next, we are approaching towards the last week of our trip. Time flies! We decided to go back to Fairlie Bakehouse for breakfast!

 photo IMG_0951 copy_zpsnpvdwp0x.jpgThis time, we tried their donut and frittata :)
We thought this is really good and alot better than their pies!!!

Wanaka Lavender Farm

I understand that lavender only bloom during summer and the best time to visit in NZ is January. But I doesn’t want to give up, and thought maybe there’s something else we can see. Maybe a lavender soft serve ice cream :p

And, it’s on our way to our next accommodation where I thought we could give it a try to visit it.

[#fly2NZ] New Zealand Day 6


Honestly, I really doesn’t feel like leaving our Airbnb because it’s so comfy. It’s probably our best stay for the last 5 days in NZ. But we need to embark the journey of 3hours. And first business of the day will definitely our breakfast! We passed by Replete Cafe & Store, and decided this will be our awesome breakfast before we reached our next airbnb.

>>> Three Sisters and The Elephant

One of the main reasons why we went over to New Plymouth is to see the famous Three Sisters and The Elephant that located near Tongaporutu. Originally, there’s 3 (25 metre tall) rock formations by the sea but eventually its left with 2 now, and currently the elephant truck is destroy in 2016 :( Years of sea waters/ rains/ sun and wind……

The most interesting fact about viewing the famous three sisters and the elephant is that we have to wait for the low tide, which took us about 2 hours, around 6pm to be able to walk over on the soft sand over. If not, you probably gonna swim over :p

We decided to stay away from New Plymouth, at this small town where we didn’t regret in fact, filled with surprised of how beautiful this place is.

[#fly2NZ] New Zealand Day 2


We reached Auckland around 11:30pm. It’s quite a long flight, nearly 10 hours straight flight. Thanks god for the 2 meals in flight, we are probably full and decided to go straight to our first airbnb, wash up and have a good sleep (and in between, doing some works etc).

I didn’t take much photos of our first accommodation because it’s really small to capture in detail. They do  have everything like a small kitchen, small wardrobe and a small queen size bed. That very night was raining heavily, and we could feel the raindrops hitting the caravan badly HAHA.

Our plan for the day is AUCKLAND > MATAMATA > ROTORUA :)

#Behind me is our first house of #hellosihuigoesNZ. It’s quite an expensive, cheap and worth the experience. but definitely a little troublesome because you can’t open your luggage here definitely.

Our travel time was about 2hours from Auckland to Hobbiton Movie Set. Our next meal will be only during our dinner time at our 2nd home. So our plan was to have a good meal and this include one of our favourite (in this 20 days in NZ) is at Best Ugly. Best Ugly are famous with their bagels, and we are not disappointed at all. ☺
