Trace: • Beach, Wasp Hive, Neck Strain
So much to tell again, and in addition, there are some macro photos, for instance from a wasp hive!
After our stay in Waihi Beach (landmark A), we went to Hot Water Beach (landmark B). At this place, there are warm springs so that one can digg holes, wait for the warm water to fill them, and take a bath. Before Waihi Beach, we did a small hike. More to the point, only the others actually hiked, because directly in the beginning, we found a young wasp hive which I stayed at to take some macro and tele photos. After that, I was inspired to use the macro a bit more often, so there are other macro photos as well.
In Hahei Beach (landmark C) we went into the ocean and had some fun in the large waves, where a minor accident happened to me: I was hit by a large wave in the first place had no painful sensations ad all; however, after a few hours, pain grew that large that I could hardly sit down, turn around in bed, or other standard movements. I went to the hospital and it turned out that I had reveived a severe neck strain. Eventually, I got some medicine, and it feels much better now.
Worth to note is the extremely hospitable way the New Zealanders deal with such accidents of Tourists: I just got covered by their accident compensation system and did not have to pay for examinations and x-rays at the hospital at all! Wow, that's nice, thanks, New Zealand!
The next night, we stayed at the very beautiful beach in Orewa (landmark E) and today, we went snorkeling and now stay in Russell (landmark F).
