Piha Paradise; with Trippy

When I first arrived into Auckland, I knew I only had 1 week to get my shit together and explore before starting back at work with Railplus the following week. 
Well, there was no messing around - I was straight to the information centre seeing what I could get up to while I had some free days. 

The weather was a bit erratic and so for the only sunny day left in the week I decided to get my ass out of the city and off to visit Piha on the West Coast. I'd seen loads of gorgeous photos on Instagram & Pinterest of Piha & especially Kite Kite Falls and I needed to know how to get there. Being someone who cannot drive, its not always easy to visit some of the places that local buses or trains bypass. 
I did a bit of research and noticed the only company that offered day trips to Piha were Trippy.

Visit: Rangitoto Island | Auckland, New Zealand

Rangitoto Island, Auckland's youngest and most recognisable volcano, sits proudly off the coast of Auckland CBD in the Hauraki Gulf. 
Just a mere baby at 600 years old, a blink of the eye in terms of Earth's history, it erupted out of the sea and formed the largest volcano in Auckland's volcanic field.
