A distinctly NZ icon the Big Bottle at Paeroa! A softdrink (sodapop) unique to NZ Lemon and Paeroa or L&P. One of my guests had a daughter who had been on exchange here and Mum was under strict instructions to bring home as much as they could carry!

On the Central Plateau just south of Lake Taupo, Volcanoes Ngauruhoe and Tongariro show off their early summer snow-coats.

Our gorgeous hotel just north of Wellington, The White Swan in Greytown. The twisty ride over the Rimutaka Hill to the ferry the next day is always exciting!

Port Underwood, Marlborough Sounds

Rarangi Beach in Cloudy Bay, Marlborough. Blenheim township is just in the right hand side of the picture. Marlborough is regarded as one of the best producers of Sauvignon Blanc wines in the world.

Pleasure boats moored in the Marlborough Sounds

Grove Arm, Marlborough Sounds just across the bay to the right is the Cobham Outward Bound School at Anakiwa

More to come!
