Hello all and Happy 2013! I've had a bit of a break from blogging due to the school holidays but I thought I'd break the drought and post some pics of our recent holiday up to nearly the top of the North Island, a beautiful place called Ahipara. It is a stunning part of NZ and the place we stayed at is just amazing- it has no electricity (plenty of tilley lamps and torches though!), hot water heated by a fire, and you can only get round to it at low tide so it was a fabulous adventure for us and the kids (we have been once before having children).
what a view!

watching a pod of Orca's...
...can you see the fins?!
We also visited this gorgeous apartment 'Rougemont' in Ahipara as it is owned by friends of ours...check it out if you'd like a break in this lovely town- the view is absolutely spectacular and the hosts are pretty awesome too!
I hope you have enjoyed a summer (or winter!) break as well. Looking forward to getting back into more blogging soon!
PS: If you would love to meet up with other bloggers at NZ's first 'blogger conference' to be held in Christchurch 12-14 April 2013 check out the details here, looks like a great weekend planned! http://www.bloggersconnecting.com
