Due to life and work commitments, (you know how it is!) I haven’t been able to travel as much as I’d like to this year. I’ve been reminiscing a lot about the expeditions I have been able to go on, so thought it would be only fitting to share my 2016 (thus far) photo diary with you…
The northernmost point of New Zealand, where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. It’s said that at gnarled pohutukawa tree which is believed to be over 800 years old, the spirits of deceased Maori leap from this tree into the ocean to return to their ancestral homeland. A little freaky but this place is stunning!
Only accessible by foot or boat, beautiful Cathedral Cove is a must visit when in the Coromandel region in New Zealand. We chose to walk the 1.5 hour return journey, it’s well worth it and the views are unmissable.
Mount Maunganui “The Mount”
Is located across the Tauranga Harbour, one of New Zealand’s many cute little beach towns. This one is unique because of the “The Mount” which is situated right on the beach and is pretty much surrounded by the Pacific Ocean. The climb to the top takes just over an hour, where you’ll be greeted with amazing views of the beach and the port. It’s also a great place to watch the paragliders 🙂
Sanjay and I were in Vietnam for just under two weeks. Not enough time to see and do everything or fully experience what the country to offer but it was mind blowing all the same! It’s a fascinating and at times frenzied place, from the peaceful surrounds of rural communities in Mai Chau to the fanatically busy roads of Ho Chi Minh, you’ll never bored in this brilliant country, it’s charm will be forever etched in your memory. The cuisine is pretty delicious too!
Hope you’ve enjoyed walking down memory lane with me!
Happy travels, Priti X
