This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
An amazing place for climbing over summer is Payne's Ford near Takaka. A whole lot of limestone crags rise up out of the forest, and there is also an amazing turquoise blue stream nearby.
The weather was amazing, although for about a week the sun was at times obscured behind a haze which was caused by ash blowing over from Australia. Some of the other climbers were from Australia and talked about their friends, rural volunteer firefighters, doing an amazing job to rescue people.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
