Sleeping in the back-seat of my car with my snow bag

Good morning! Just woke up on beautiful Waihi Beach and although the back-seat is not quite as comfy as the luxurious mattress ┬áit’s still a special feeling to wake up right at the beach, stick your toes out the sliding door and feel the warm sand under your feet – instead of the cold Wanaka floor. A quick dip in the Pacific and a coffee later I am ready to hit the road again – exploring the Coromandel Peninsula and it’s lovely white beaches. PS: The moon roof is pretty funky though – especially when you wake up in the middle of a night and catch a glimpse of the Southern hemisphere skies. Lots more stars than in Europe!
