Somehow I cannot post comments, so here are the answers to two of your comments!
The first one to Falco's comment on 14.11.:
Yes, Devonport is a part of Auckland. It's an old harbour village, we went there by ferry. And yes, there is ebb and flood. Actually I don't know exactly, but it looks like it ^^
Soon I will post some photos of Hastings and my hostel.
Alright, the second answer goes to the very awkward comment from an anonymous writer, I don't know when he (or she?) posted that comment:
Were you drunk?
So, there are answers!
