Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan
We discovered today why the Coromandel region is known for its tough roads - they are narrow, steep, and winding beyond anything Iíve ever seen as "an average road"
before. People from North America really need to take everything they know about driving and toss it out the window, particularly when it comes to travel distances and
times! This photo shows 309 Road, a 26 km long, mostly-gravel road which we took largely because of some groves of huge kauri trees that we wanted to see.
