It was a whirlwind flight up to Hamilton and an early drive the next morning to the Coromandel to finally do the famed Pinnacles Walk. Leading up to our hike, all of us were expecting superb weather considering what a good summer it has been for New Zealand and to our dismay, it was the complete opposite.
Weather aside, it wasn’t a bad way to spend Christmas. Have a look at the photos, we still had a great time!
What a year it has been for me!
I whizzed through 2017 feeling exceptionally breathless from all the activity and for good reason, I feel quite ready to do a closure to welcome the New Year. Sure, there were the occasional lows amidst all the highs, but I’ll save that bit of conversation to have over a cup of coffee if you’re keen.
For now, let us look back at what a fantastic travel year this has been!
Admit it – At some point in your life, you’ve probably oooooh-ed and aaaahhhh-ed at all these visuals of beautiful luxury campsites out in the wilderness that’s dotted all over Pinterest, travel magazines, social media, wishing that you’d be able to experience it at least once in your lifetime.
I definitely fitted that description and after endless browsing, bookmarking tabs and following some pretty inspiring travel feed, we finally got a taste of glamping at the Highfield Forest Retreat, an experience that I highly recommend if you’re ever looking for an unique staycation here in New Zealand.
