Back in Auckland

The travels are over for a week. The bus trip was surprisingly pleasant and arrived in Auckland early.

I am officially impressed. The last time I took an Intercity bus it was run by a state organisation, very poorly, almost never kept to the timetable and had rotten service.

This however was very good. From the time I booked online the night before to arriving in Auckland I was way impressed with Intercity.

It is years literally since i went down that side of the North Island. Fun to see "Smash Palace" at Horopito again, it hasn't changed a bit. Even some of the towns along the way seem to have grown up a little. I swear the biggest Subway in New Zealand is at Otorohonga.

So back in Auckland for a week then off to Australia to circumnavigate the West Island…. mmmm 14,000km's and 25 days.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
