We’ve been around North Island of New Zealand for more than a month now and we’ve used our Byba at some pretty nice places. Here’s my personal selection of the 5 most awesome spots for herb lovers on North Island of New Zealand (note that we haven’t been to Wellington yet, which is supposed to be a pretty sweet city).
There are cliffs, there are bays, there are sandy ocean beaches, green pastures right next to them and Mt. Manaia towering over the whole scene with its gaze always upon the Pacific. There are not a lot of people around, so Whangarei Heads are perfect for having a smoke, chillax and just enjoy all the beautiful surroundings.
Mount Manganui is a popular spot with the locals so it’s best to smoke before the climb or to find a hidden corner in the woods up there. In any case, the hike is extremely nice – you’re surrounded by green grass covered in sea shells and you can also spot a rabbit or two. The view from the top is pretty amazing and there are some cool benches that overlook the ocean. Beware of the wind tho, it can easily smoke half of your joint, the greedy bastard.
Rotorua is a city build on very active grounds. Geothermal ponds are everywhere and so is the smell of rotten eggs (sulphur). That is perfect for masking the smell of weed. The water of the lake is not the same color as we’re used to, there’s steam rising from the ponds in the park, so the whole experience can be positively trippy. One cool thing to do after having a smoke is bathing in a hot creek under a waterfall. Or you know, just light it up while bathing.
There are a lot of great spots around Lake Taupo which is fairly big and really beautiful. There is also a lot of amazing street art in the city of Taupo. Mix both of those things with Byba, some herbs and you’ll surely have an amazing time.
Napier is a city by the sea, which is always a plus and it’s also known for its architecture. It’s built in the art deco style, which is something different and really neat to look at. Wandering the street and shores of Napier while stoned is a really nice experience and you can almost feel you’ve traveled through time. If you visit the city during the Art Deco festival, expect people to be dressed in 1930’s style and just immerse in a different era.
That’s it for this Tuesday.
Stay tuned, stay smokey,
