Verse of The Day
“Otiia i a ia e hurihuri ana i enei mea, na, ka puta moemoea mai tetahi anahera a te Ariki ki a ia, ka mea, E Hohepa, e te tama a Rawiri, kaua e hopohopo ki te tango i a Meri, i tau wahine; na te Wairua Tapu hoki tona hapu. A e whanau ia he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko IHU: no te mea mana e whakaora tona iwi i o ratou hara.” (Matthew 1:20-21)

Alex and farmland early morning

And the kindness of New Zealand's local people continued to amaze us the following day when Alex and I trekked onwards to Ngunguru (35 KM).

(November 10/10 . DAY #27 . 35 KM) Today was a good day. A day filled with laughter and giggles. A day when everything was bright and cheery. A day where the sun shone so much we relished our moments in the shade. A day where Alex and I made it from Point A to B without so much of a hiccup. It was a good day - a really good day.

And part of that was due to the kindness of a local in Ngunguru by the name of Wendy. Alex and I had to check into a campground, stock up on some groceries and possibly find somewhere to use the internet to check for any updates on the trail ahead. We had found none of that and were instead having the natural debate of where we should go for Plan B.

And then Wendy came along. We asked her where the nearest campground was (our map indicated that there was 2 to choose from) and she informed us that there was no more campgrounds in Ngunguru. Upon seeing our crestfallen faces, she then suggested that we simply camp in her garden instead. We gladly accepted and proceeded to her home where we have been able to set up our tent alongside the garden patch of fresh veggies and even a banana tree! As if that weren't enough - Wendy opened up her downstairs floor so we'd have access to our own private shower and toilet. To be able to get clean 2 days in a row (yesterday at the caravan park) was more - much more - than Alex or I had bargained for!
