Upon recommendation from a friend, The Man and I stayed at Ohinemuri Estate, a winery with cute cabin-style accommodation near Paeroa.
The first of many waterwalls we saw.
An impressive combination of traditional and modern marked the entrance to Waitomo Caves. I have seen limestone caves before but nothing like this. At one point you board a little boat and float out into a pitch black cave where the ceiling is completely covered in glowworms. It looks like a blanket of stars – so magical.
Spooky tree shot #1.
