Waiheke Island is full of laid back people and you can stay everywhere you want with your Van. Pure Freedom Camping :-). We traveled around the Island and camped at lovely Beaches and Bays. After 2 Days Aru is leaving Waiheke and the crazy German Community.
After that i spend one more Week on Waiheke and left then to heading up to the Northland to met Garth (i met him on the Abel Tasman Trek) and Martin (one of the Hitchikers from Queenstown).
Oh yah, and i extend me Visa to December. 6 Hour Action in the Immigration Office of Auckland - :-(
