SO as some of you have figured I’m currently in NZ making the most of the beautiful summer weather we are having and spending time with family and friends.
Whats also exciting is when some of your best friends all meet up in one place and you can finally all hang out together!
Working all over the place has its amazing perks but also the difficulties of missing friends or not being present for those milestone moments…
The last time I went to Waiheke Island I was probably about 12 years old and it was a holiday adventure with the family, Waiheke is quite a different place now to what is was back then it all started with the long line to board the ferry which shocked me! How could it be that so many people are heading out to this island for the day, I’m talking like 100’s of people! and that was just one ferry! There was a rather large concert on and some big names attracting the crowds.
Waiheke is a much larger island than I first thought as the ferry from coromandel town stops at Orapiu and getting to the fun part where the shops and winery’s are is quite a long way, theres no public transport provided from Orapiu, unless you book a taxi or shuttle bus.
I was lucky enough to spend the day at Mudbrick Winery for a delicious lunch with some of my favourite people….thats the whole point really of this post to share with you the amazing feast we had!
There were crispy agria roasted potatoes, which I’ve only ever found in Nz. If anyone else knows where to find agria potatoes in the world please let me know!
Slow roasted lamb with a cucumber minty dip and roasted egg plant.
there was also a simple yet delicious carrot salad with hummus.
the Mezze platter to start with all sorts of delicious bites on it.
I’m just going to load the pics up so you all can see for yourselves how amazing the place is and make sure that if you ever have the chance to get out and explore, even if it is in your own back yard with some of your best mates.
