We found a perfect destination for a day trip just half an hour from Auckland. Duder Regional Park in Clevedon is one more beautiful example of New Zealand stunning nature. Spending a day outdoors, just walking up and down the hills, was what we were looking for. It is great how fast here you can find a place that will make you happy. That’s one more reason why I really love this country!
The weather was perfect for wandering around. It wasn’t sunny all the time and we were happy about of that, and you know why? The sun in New Zealand is not friendly at all. You can’t stay outside for a longer time during a sunny day. After ten minutes without a shade the skin start to hurt because of the heat. It took us some time to get used to that and now I’m taking a sun block cream and my hat whenever I leave the house.
