Where are you going this year? Got any travel plans?
I get asked this a lot at work, and no surprise really – it’s been close to 2 years since my last real trip. Japan in 2015 was amazing but we’re doubling down on homemaking right now and for the immediate future! Any upcoming travel is probably gonna be domestic; luckily I’ve still got a few places to tick off.
It’s one of our more famous beaches, and there’s a wee volcano to climb. Plus: hot salt water pools! Prime for a weekend trip, just a couple hours from Auckland.
It’s a secret shame that I’ve never made to the Nelson or Marlborough regions at the top of the South Island. I won’t be hiking the whole Abel Tasman track – that’s for sure – but I’m dying to explore parts of this coastal national park, on foot and kayak.
And the Mackenzie region in general. I can’t wait to see Mt Cook and Lake Pukaki in the flesh. Every single photo I’ve seen is out of this world and almost too good to believe!
