365 days ago: Far North 2

New Zealand, North Island, Far North


  • Waikato and Matai: a double beach in the Karikari Peninsula, being on our own in the most beautiful world.
  • Driving on a gravel road through the palm forest.
  • Those oysters in Russell, in New Zealand's first hotel.
  • Got to know about the Koru: A Maori word for the spiral shape based on the unfurling fern leaves. It represents new life, strength, has the same shape as a wave. It is a recurring shape in the Maori patterns. And it is so beautiful.
  • The coast, the coast, the coast.
