Roaming through the Wilderness
Springtime came to New Zealand, and I started my Walkabout. I grabbed my backpack and camera to roam New Zealand just by walking off from Wellington. Well, I didn’t come too far. Somewhere between Wellington and Lake Taupo, it started to rain very severely. So I took the bus. At this point, I didn’t even take a lot of photos. Most of the time, my camera was secured in the backpack.
Close to the city of Taupo, I ended up on a free camping site which was called Reid’s Farm. Meanwhile, it is closed, but in 2014, it was the most excellent place in New Zealand, where I found a beautiful community of backpackers. Reid’s Farm became my home for a while, and the people there were like my family. Even though I made many small hitchhiker trips to nearby national parks and cities, this campsite inspired me the most.
There is an article about Reid’s Farm on my website that contains more photos, describing my impression there in detail. Please check it out.
