Last year I wrote a post about how I planned to come to Mahurangi Regional Park but somehow ended up in Scandrett Regional Park, haha! Well, six months later I actually made it to Mahurangi Regional Park. It is so beautiful! I couldn't believe I hadn't come here sooner, especially considering how close it is to my house!
This park had green hills for days, sparking seas views and fresh crisp air. The thing I liked about the walking tracks here, is you can just custom make your walking path. You can do a whole loop track or part of two different ones. We basically did a big loop of the whole park (I am not even sure what tracks we took). On the drive down (before we got to the beach/park) we saw an entrance at the top of a hill and just started there, pictured in the photo above. I was once again blown away by how magical New Zealand is!
Fairy Falls, located in the Waitakere Ranges, is nothing short of amazing. It is one of those places that you go to and literally feel overwhelmed by the beauty of it. I could come here a hundred times and still be ‘wowed.’
It consists of two part’s, the lower fall’s and then the upper falls, which is a series of smaller waterfalls. It’s amazing walking down the track and seeing several smaller falls, amongst lush bush.
Things to know:
In our #cleaneating world, it can be hard to decipher exactly what being ‘healthy' means. We are overwhelmed with information about living a healthy lifestyle, from paleo, vegan, and gluten free, to dairy free and low carb THE LIST GOES ON! It is so easy to end up thinking that you shouldn’t eat certain foods, simply because it’s the latest trend.
About three years ago, my knowledge around health was incredibly limited. I thought being healthy meant eating a salad and a piece of fruit sometimes. I also thought that being tired every day was normal. This was until I was introduced to Dr Libby’s books and seminars which have seriously changed my whole outlook on health. I became so interested in the topic of health and energy levels and began reading books on health for fun. I know, I didn’t even recognise myself.
Growing up, I took full advantage of having a fast metabolism, and I was known for my love of coke and McDonald’s. I don’t think that a week went by at Uni that I didn’t consume nuggets or coke. I didn't take notice of how often I used the sentence “I am SO tired” because, to be honest, I thought being exhausted was a pretty normal part of life. The more I learned, the more lifestyle changes I made, which not only gave me more energy, but also made me happier
Recently Ben and I went to Rotorua to celebrated one year of marriage! Okay, I know what your thinking - Rotorua?? That does not sound like a romantic destination at all! But let me tell you, after spending four days there I was blown away by not only how beautiful the place is but how much there is to do! When I initially started doing research on what to do I was overwhelmed. From hot springs to tree walks, you will NOT be bored there!
