Having a zero day today. Basically a rest day with zero kilometres. Although not exactly resting. While the body can recover a little with no big miles with a pack on, there is a resupply to do. Ahipara doesn’t have much in the way of shops to resupply from so a hich into Kaitaia will be required. Being a Sunday, I’m hoping stuff will be open….
Well no problem at all. A new cafe on the edge of Apihara was open for business and there is nothing nothing like a fresh latte to start the day. I managed to hitch a ride into Kaitatia within 5 minutes with a local and hit up the Pack ‘n’ Save for a resupply for the next 5 day leg. Managed to skype home using one of the many Spark free wifi hotspots dotted around the place and got a ride back with a French traveller only a kilometre out of town.
The remainder of the day will be rest, recuperation and lots of fruit and veg.
Wow, its certainly an international trekk. Sounds like good comradery along the way.
