Hello Kaipara Harbour!
I finished a 5-day-tour exploring the Kaipara harbor - a vast body of water an hour north of Auckland. It's a very rural part of New Zealand, with farms sprinkled here and there. The area is simply stunning and oozes calm and relaxation. There are a few small villages, but overall just lots of hills and valleys without a single soul in sight.
For those who have read my third Golden Girls Book Daring To Love, this is where I place Kauri Cove, where sexy Hollywood star Connor meets down-to-earth nurse and farmer Claudia, I love their banter, especially when he tries to help her on the farm. Follow me on Facebook if you want to see more photos from my travels.
