New Zealand in November

Okay, the weather has been pretty lousy this November and in between the wet spring bursts I’ve done just a little travel with a road trip down to Wellington early on in the month and a short visit to Oakura last week.

Blog updates:

Last month I rebranded my whole site from Banquets and Backpacks to The Travel Natural and it was less work than I predicted (I managed to change it all in an afternoon). The Travel Natural is a work in progress and I hope to make it the place to go for off the beaten path travel in New Zealand, so any and all suggestions are welcome.

What I’m doing in December:

I have big plans for this month.

Tomorrow we’re driving New Zealand’s Forgotten World Highway to Whangamomona, so keep an eye out for more off the beaten path travel up on the blog.

After Christmas Jack and I will be road tripping around the North Island, we hope to hike the Tongariro Crossing and we have vague plans to visit Taupo, Rotorua and the beaches on the east coast.
