A travel blog entry by harryandnorah


Leaving New Plymouth we headed south on Hwy 3, on the east side of Mount Taranaki. Clouds were developing from the sea but we were still treated to great views of the volcano. Absolutely impressive. The east side also had great, flat meadows with many cows grazing. We stopped at "Stratford', which is Shakespeare influenced and has a clock tower. …

Happy in HaHei

... that the Kiwis are extremely friendly - he's been given keys to a random stranger's car, which he has been admiring, to 'take it for a spin'! Really good to see Ben living out his passion for geography and not on the corporate treadmill!!

Fuelled with alcohol we slept really well and woke to bathe in the natural Hot Pools at the bottom of the Mount. This place would be perfect in the winter as for a small fee you get to sit or swim in one ...

A surfers' paradise

... however, particularly the last 100 miles or so when Barbara was driving and I was able to enjoy it.

We've had a car-free day today (Wednesday), doing some walking in the morning instead and going to the beach in the afternoon. Whangamata is a bit of a surfers' paradise and it was great watching the experts ride the huge waves. What a shame we forgot to pack our boards!

This is my second entry in the blog, and once ...

A visit to Onemana

A travel blog entry by tony-helen


... became quite excited but this all added up to wearing them out. Frank and Tony had the opportunity, after our evening meal of Tuna Surprise (sorry Lorrain) to play 4 holes on the golf course at the back of the Bach. It ended up 2 holes each before the light faded and a young lad came to collect all the flags on the greens. For wildlife enthusiasts, we have encouraged a song thrush to hop into the house to look for crumbs and have spotted a young hedgehog outside the kitchen ...

Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Bay

A travel blog entry by legoodtimesroll


... we even had a swim. The next hot spot was Hot Water Beach which you have to visit at low tide. It is a location where you take a spade to a lovely sandy beach and dig a hole which fills with hot water and you sit in it. I know we did a similar thing in Rotorua but this beach was much nicer and the sun was hot and the water was seriously hot, in fact you had to be careful not to burn yourself. We went on to Cook's Bay which is another beautiful bay discovered by James Cook ( he ...

    I have stayed here a few times & I love this place. It's clean & modern, not too pricey. The pool is great & easily accessible from the rooms. It's close to the highway but not noisy at all & is a great distance from the beach.
    Love this place!
