Waitangi to Kerikeri, Northland, New Zealand: the road-trip continues

From Waitangi, as the sun rises, through to Kerikeri, my road-trip continues – with a stop in the middle for a luxurious facial treatment on my poor sunburnt, wind burnt face – at Living Nature, one of the worlds very few natural products – natural is a word that’s easy to say and hard to live up to . . .  these folk do! See the photo of me with a honey based product on it – its smelt good too.

I have also visited Rewas Village,  Kemp House and The Stone Store – New Zealand’s OLDEST European building.

No time to write, off for a dinner at the award-winning at FOOD at Wharepuke (find them on Facebook) then out on a night walk with Adventure Puketi and back to sleep in a fabulous eco-cottage in the middle of a subtropical garden . . .  it’s very hard to believe this was bare earth only 18 years ago and now it’s considered on of New Zealand’s Gardens of Significance. See more here at Wharepuke Subtropical Garden then wait for my stories to follow Smile

In the meantime .. a pot pouri of pics
