It is true what they say ‘don’t leave home until you have seen the country’ and that is exactly what I did this last weekend when I ventured on a road trip with a friend and his dog Poncho up to the top of the North Island to Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach.
The views were spectacular, the weather was amazing and the scenery breath-taking. It was true paradise. With the white sandy beaches, glistening water and the sun shining brightly, it was a perfect way to spend a long weekend. It also reminded me about how important it is to get some balance in life, away from work and living in a busy City.
What were the highlights – I loved speeding along Ninety Mile Beach, swimming in the clear blue ocean and contemplating life looking out at the expanse of ocean as far as the eye could see. It was therapeutic for the soul.
