When you travel nearly 3,000km, you come across some things that are so weird and cute and curious (sometimes all at once!) that can only be described as funny. Even the fact that many of those things were spotted in pairs, close to each other, is a funny coincidence! I didn’t take photos of everything, but here’s a list of 12 of the funniest things I saw around the North Island.
Eutopia Café in Kaiwaka was closed for renovations but its exterior showed a lot of promise.
This life-size doll at the Mormors Café in Kaiwaka freaked me out, I didn’t have my glasses on when I noticed it and for a split second I thought it was a real person!
The Christmas spirit was very much alive at the Otamure Bay camping ground in Whananaki. There was even a nativity scene on the beach!
These public toilets are considered the main tourist attraction in Kawakawa.
Tapotupotu Bay has the friendliest crab ever. and also…
Kudos to whoever drew Squidward Tentacles on the sand!
Tirau, in the Waikato, has this giant sheep…
And of course there’s a shepherd dog nearby!
This mini-lighthouse at Anderson Park in Napier is beyond adorable!
But the mini-oil rig on the same lake was a bit odd…
If you ever drive by Dannevirke, make sure to check out this impressive toy car collection with over eight thousand models at Dave’s Den.
And to finish this list off, a creepy bulldozer in Ngawi, a fishing village on the south coast on the way to Cape Palliser.
What did you think? Any favourites? 😉
