Well done! We have reached Cape Reinga-the northest peak of New Zealand. It's a magic place where the history of New Zealand began. Long time ago the Maori came from Polynesia and started to settle down. For Maoris this special place means a lot. When the Maoris die, their spiritis return from Cape Reinga to Hawaiki (where the Maoris actually come from).You see more Maoris than European people in Cape Reinga. My absolute favourite was the point where the Tasmanean Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. There you can have a glimpse at huge waves from far. The Maori say that it's there where man und woman comes together and new life is created.
