Portland to Seattle via Columbia River Gorge

Bridal Veil Falls

On the way to Bridal Veil Falls we spotted people parking on the side of the road and we started to get puzzled as to whether this was the parking, we decided to drive onwards and eventually found the official car park much further on, so I suspect the people parking on the road were hikers. 238 more words

Travels: Raglan and Waireinga/Bridal Veil Falls

Summer is quite possibly my most favourite season of the year. I love them all for various reasons but with summer, I just love the fact that it’s nice and warm, you can wear what you want without worrying about needing to bring a jacket or otherwise, beach time…the list continues! 828 more words

Feature: A Waikato Road Trip Day One

If satirical TV show Seven Sharp is anything to go by, the Waikato exists to amuse Aucklanders as they speed through on their way to more palatable destinations like the golden beaches of the Bay of Plenty or the ski fields of the Central North Island, and yes, to the outsider the Waikato can seem a little bland: pastureland and cows, dairy factories and of course, the sight of tumble weeds tumbling and the sound of crickets chirping, but like any region, the Waikato is a diverse geographical landscape informed by a temperate sub-tropical climate and arable soils perfectly suited to the growing of grass, which by way of the humble dairy cow, is transformed into milk, the white gold which has powered the regions economy for generations. 700 more words
