Hawke’s Bay is the renowned wine-producing region in New Zealand but I went there on the first weekend of August which is still winter and unfortunately, it was raining most of the days I was there.
Napier is a coastal city known for art deco. I stayed here for 3 nights with the hope of visiting the nearby towns but then again it was raining. I got couple hours of sunshine before I had to leave though so that’s something.
I got to visit the National Aquarium of New Zealand which is not that big but this is where I got to see real kiwis for the first time. I watched the cute little penguins being fed and I saw some interesting creatures. They also have a huge squid which I think is better than the one at Te Papa Museum in Wellington.
I like Napier’s Marine Parade which has the tree-lined waterfront promenade.
I visited Arataki Honey which was so cool specially the Bee Car. LOL
And the rest are just beautiful random photos taken along the way. 😊
