New Plymouth, NZ

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hello! It seems like forever since I have written anything for this blog… but with faithful followers still asking when they will hear about what the heck we did with the rest of the time we were away and some new people just discovering my little space I thought I really should try and get everyone caught up with our travels. So here goes…

Last February our visas for Australia came to an end and so we packed our bags and headed off to the next stop we had planned. Luckily we didn’t have to go far, we hopped across to the north island of New Zealand to visit my aunt and uncle who live in New Plymouth. It was so nice to see family again after being away from home for a year and we really enjoyed being looked after and shown around the place they have made their home. New Plymouth is a harbour town based at the bottom of a volcano, Mount Taranaki, which unfortunately during the entirety of our stay was hidden behind clouds! You can’t plan the weather! This photo of the harbour was taken at the top of a hill(?! – I’ve included a picture so you can decide for yourself what it is…), which Jack and I climbed to take in the view before heading down to the beach for a dip. I’m afraid this post isn’t very picture heavy, I’m trying to ease myself back into the swing of doing things (it took me a while to remember my password!) but hopefully I will be putting up some more posts soon of how we spent our time in New Zealand, so there are plenty more photos to come don’t worry!
