We learnt so much planning our wedding! Some of the things we learned took us by complete surprise! Here are the 10 things we learned...
The Bay of Islands is a place Ben and I had been to a few times when we were younger but to be honest I remembered very little of it. For this reason, I was really excited to be going back and properly explore this area!
Known for it's untouched beaches, historical attractions, and Maori cultural artefacts, Bay of Island's is a prominent tourist destination. The Maori culture in this area is what brought us to the Bay of Island's this time. Ben has been learning Maori since July last year, so for Christmas I brought us a tour on a Maori Waka.
While we were there we also managed to visit some amazing places, including four waterfalls in three days!
This little slice of heaven, two hours out of Auckland, truly has so much to offer! Bush for miles, beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and amazing walking tracks! It was so nice to spend eight days relaxing on the beach, doing lots of walks and exploring. We stayed in a bach in Pauinui, and did day trips to Hahei and Waihi!
