Tēnā koutou katoa

This is all about New Zealand - Aotearoa - and the time I spent there. Magical times, beautiful scenery, gushing geysers, thermal wonderlands. Hear about Waitangi Day, discover the meaning of the word "Aotearoa", see the Glaciers, read about hangis and Hakas, and visit the beautiful Bay of Islands. So come with me on a journey - a journey to The Land of The Long White Cloud.

8. Bay of Islands - Paihia Accommodation

Wednesday 3 January

The YHA Paihia is a lovely two-storey white weatherboard place on the Cnr of Kings & MacMurray Roads, and a mere 100 meteres from the beach. The outdoor area is undercover with some nice greenery with the lounge overlooking it.

Paihia YHA

Outdoor Courtyard

Most people staying here ate outside, there is a thick clear plastic "curtain" to protect from the wind.

Juniperus chinensis 'Pyramidalis'

The potted plants placed around the area made a nice touch and gave it a pleasant ambience.

The Lounge Room

Comfortable sofas and colours of green and burgundy made for a welcoming feel.

Lounge and Computer Area

The area immediately to your right as you enter has computers and internet.

The Dorm

This was my dorm - a 4 bed dorm, mine was on the left and each dorm has its own small ensuite. The YHA also has single/double/private rooms.
