First VW campervan trip
Updated: Mar 26, 2020
Well this one was an experience lol.
Drove 1 hour 30min to Murupara Couldn't find the site. Ended up on a dirt track the went for miles and miles. The VW was absolutely filthy.
Eventually found the campsite. Not really a camp site but a freedom camping site meaning facilities were minimal (none)
Had a cuppa tea and decided to move on to Whakatane. Ended up on a gravel road to nowhere. Fuel was low. Decided to turn around. Made it back to Murupara to find out that 2 fuel stations were closed. The 3rd was for lorries only.... Damn!!!!
Decided to try and make it home. We did just.
So in a nutshell we traveled 200 miles to end up sleeping in out own bed..... We can laugh about it now.
But it was a good learning curve.
Got some nice photos though.
