Fascinating Redwoods

Amazing place just five minutes from downtown Rotorua is Whakarewarewa Forest known by the locals as Redwoods. People come here to ride a mountain bike, enjoy horse riding and a walk along great walking tracks. For me the most fascinating thing was Treewalk. It consists of 23 suspension bridges between 22 Californian coastal redwoods. The view of 100 years old dense native bush, from 12 meters above the ground, is stunning!

Meeting of the seas

This is definitely one more special place in New Zealand. Cape Reinga is the spot where two seas clash. It is the meeting point of Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean. Really amazing. You can see how unsettled the water is, it looks like a race. If you are watching from atop the view is absolutely perfect…

What’s the best way to relax? I don’t know about you but for me the picnic and fishing in Colac Bay this weekend was a great way to end the week. Colac Bay is the small township 45 minutes from Invercargill. People are also coming here to take a surf lessons or to go diving. We saw a very nice camping ground so, as the summer is finally here, I think I found the perfect place to open the camping season!

Orewa: Steps on the mirror

One of my favorite places, half hour drive from downtown Auckland, is the small town on the east coast and its beautiful, long, sandy beach Orewa. While we were living near this place coming here, for a nice, relaxing walk, was a part of every day. Back then we were housesitting so we spent a lot of time here with the dog that we took care of. You can imagine how much did he enjoy running freely from the one side to another. During one of those walks I captured this photo. It was just a few minutes before the rain. Look at this sand, it was like walkig over the glass mirror
