Leaving colorful Chinese mountains I fly back to the coast. Luckily, my raft survived even without my control. I'm packing and move towards the Philippines, passing by many islands and going further south. The journey is long, but I do not move away from the coast. I come to New Guinea and from there I go to Australia. I sail further east along the coast of that country / continent. In the open sea, I'm going to the country of the long white cloud. After sailing 2.000 kilometers I reach the far north of New Zealand - the last place on the planet that is settled. Right there I will end my Tiki voyage.
A beach 80 kilometers long offers me the opportunity to ground the raft anywhere. I go to the lighthouse and come to the final destination - Cape Reinga. It's the place where the Pacific Ocean and Tasman Sea meet. We clearly see the line of the “collision” of these two giants. Cape Reinga is particularly important to the Maori because they believe that souls of their deceased pass into the underworld here. That's why they called it “place of the departed”. Maori believe that the souls of the dead jump from the pohutukawa, an 800 year old tree, to begin the final journey to Hawaiki, distant land of eternal peace.
