New Zealand 2015: Meetin' Black Magic, Volcano Exploring, Lordes Devonport and Sailing with Maori's...

Kia-Ora!

Been rainy days of late here in Auckland, so I got busy sharing my latest travel news from down under from cool little New Zealand.....but first let's say Kia-Ora from the summit of Rangitoto Volcano which Maori natives used as a lookout for any unwanted trespassers onto their island just off the coast line of Auckland.

But more on that later....this blog is pretty much a sailing special so hold tight.....
