Since I'm on the roll, thought might as well post all the pictures I've taken recently. We took a trip to Coromandel a few weeks back. It was a pleasant trip despite all the winding roads. Of course the highlight had to be the hike to Cathedral Cove. The beach was simply beautiful. Later we headed down to Hot Water Beach and gosh - the sand was really really hot!! We stayed at Whittianga and the weather was pretty good.


It's been a long while since I last posted anything. Been terribly busy - after Jakarta, it was time to head to Auckland. However, last weekend, I managed to head to Matamata - the Hobbiton town. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the tour was pretty cool. Our group was rather small - only 5 of us since it was the earliest time slot. Our tour guide was fantastic - she could really tell us lots from the LOTR trilogy. The weather was beautiful that day and the tour included sheep shearing and feeding a little lamb. So here are some pics (no touch ups at all) - the view of the Hobbit dwellings, view from Bilbo's house, the Pretty Tree and Bilbo Baggins' party site.
