Golden Bay, New Zealand, 2012

Can you see the Kiwi bird? - photo from travelblog

Kiwi bird (aka my Native Kiwi husband) and I were in Golden Bay for our new year holiday. Golden Bay is in the very north of the South Island, New Zealand. It’s one of my favourite places in the world!

Holiday is always too short in Golden Bay, even in the rain! Golden Bay is sub-tropical and known for its sunshine. However this year the weather had been unusual and brought plenty of rain to the region. Even though we missed the big flood just before Xmas, we did run into 3 days of rain during our holiday. Suprisingly, we were not short of activities to do! Apart from rock climbing at Paynes Ford Reserve (best limestone climbing in NZ) which we ALWAYS do, we also went caving this year.

I hope you all had a wonderful start to 2012!
