When I arrived New Zealand on June 15th, I got to go on a really nice roadtrip in Wairarapa Region on my first weekend; https://iamryshel.com/2016/06/20/my-first-roadtrip-in-new-zealand/
And after completing a month, I got to go back to Wairarapa Region on July 16-17. This time, I visited Castlepoint.
Castlepoint is a small beachside town on the Wairarapa coast about 2 1/2 hours drive from Wellington Central.
Before heading back to Wellington, we swung by at West Wind farm located in Makara.
