New Zealand is a country of rare seismic beauty: glacial mountains, fast-flowing rivers, deep, clear lakes, hissing geysers and boiling mud. There are also abundant native forests, long, deserted beaches and a variety of fauna, such as the kiwi, endemic to its shores. Any number of vigorous outdoor activities - tramping (hiking), skiing, rafting and, of course, that perennial favourite, bungy jumping - await the adventurous. You can swim with dolphins, gambol with newborn lambs, whale-watch or fish for fattened trout in pristine streams and rivers.

World Without End

By Ken Follett, a good read, second book of his I've read. Talk about a corrupt society. Sadly it is a constant in our world. I had thought New Zealand to be less affected than other countries I have travelled in but I have come to realise that it is ... Read more >

Thoughts on a bus

Sat, 20 May 2017 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [55]

 We see everything in terms of light and shade. If all colour were removed we would still see the scene because each item in the scene is a differing shade of grey. Think about that - each item! Each leaf on each tree of a forest, each blade of ... Read more >

Apparently I'm 'WHITE', it's not a thing I have noticed myself much but lately it is hitting me often in the face especially on social media. I haven't noticed colour really in relation to people, friends and family, but I'm being asked to more and more.... Read more >

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 | By guild_family_of_3 | Views [103]

We were warned before we ventured North that the inhabitants of Northland, the northernmost province in New Zealand, are of a different variety. By this I am guessing they were referring to the observation that shoes and shirts are entirely optional, ... Read more >

THE BEACHES Tokerau beach is in the picturesque Doubtless Bay on the Karikari Peninsula, Northland, New Zealand. Gentle surf and gradually declining beaches made for a very safe play area for Conner. Even better, it took less than two minutes to walk ... Read more >
