BEACH + FOREST + MOUNTAIN [COROMANDEL REGION] NEW ZEALAND

After driving through some of the most spectacular scenery on this planet, we arrived early in the morning at the little seaside village of Whangamata (pop. 3600) - a surfing mecca. By the end of the day we didn't want to leave.

It's Christmas!!!! These photo's just sum up Kiwi Christmas for me. In fact Ive just come home from the beach, so hot today in Christchurch.

But seriously, man, you guys.... Im speechless! Why have I not been to the Coromandel yet?

New Zealand Ministry of Tourism needs to employ you guys. 6 figure salary, comp accom all over the country. Food and drink gratis of course. Bet you wouldnt say no.

You guys would make even Huntly look great!

You are so kind - thanks I fell in love with the place and wouldn't mind a holiday home there - damn ! I need to be a multi-billionaire, I want homes all over New Zealand. I can live almost anywhere in NZ except Huntly of course

You are so sweet ML, you have just scored yourself a free drink mate Whangamata is apparently the ugly side of the Coromandel - can you imagine what the rest looks like , I can't wait to explore the entire peninsula but we will need a loooooong weekend for that.

Nobody can make Huntly look good - it is a lost cause . The best way is to avoid it completely Glad to read that the weather is great - 26 degrees here and feels as if I am in a steam room, the air isn't moving and it is heavy with humidity - yuck ! Enjoy ML and we will see you soon - next year
