Ulla's sister and her husbond moved to New Zealand in 2000. This was an opportunity for us to visit this exiting country. After celebrating Christmas the New Year (2003-04) at Anne and Ove in Whangarei, 190 km nonth of Auckland, we rented a car to drive around the North Island for 4 weeks on our own. This is just a short list of the places we visited on this trip.
