New Zealand.. holiday of a lifetime

My weekends in New Zealand has been always busy.. we see to it that we can visit one interesting place in New Zealand every weekend.. We’ve been to the south of Auckland – Rotorua where everything seems boiling.. to the north of Auckland – Bay of Islands where the famous Hole of the rock can be found.. We’ve been to the island called Waiheke where we visited a nice vineyard.. we were late for a vineyard tour but staying under the sun with the vineyard in the background was amazing! – considering its winter down here… We’ve been to the Mission bay, Kumeu and Muriwai Beach..  I would say – New Zealand is really one of the special countries I’ve been with .. you can just drive at least 30 minutes and you are already in the beach area.. it amazing! I cannot have this in Toronto 🙂
