Raglan is a little Surfer Village a little bit South-West to Auckland, the Village isn’t that great, it’s chilly and has a few good Cafes and obviously a few surf shobs, the beach on the other hand is know for some of the best waves in the world and although I didn’t get them, the waves I got when I was surfing were much better than anything I had before (one time in France and one time in Whitianga), so i was very happy with that stuff 🙂
The best about my trip to raglan however was the hostel I stayed in, Scott’s Place is a really small place with a few dorm rooms, a few cabins and space for tents or your van, so that you can sleep however you want. In the Living room music plays all the time and nice people to talk to or play games hang around there a lot, plus there are a lot of hats, which is great, so you always find something to do. Altough the place is somewhat out of Raglan, I didn’t have too much trouble getting there. I had to take the Bus to Te Uku which as it turned out was a really small place in the middle of Hamilton and Raglan, because i got the latest bus there the little Shop and Restaurant where already closed, I had no phone signal, so i was a little bit scared what would happen if nobody would pick me up, but everything went fine :).
Sadly i could not take pictures from myself Surfing and I only have a few from Raglan but i hope you enjoy them anyway 🙂
