I did consider whether I could include Onaero as a Travel Memory Tuesday post - after all, it is in my home province of Taranaki.
However, I haven't lived in Taranaki since 1998 and Onaero is a long way from where I grew up. So I decided it counts as a travel destination.
If you have been following my blog for a while you may member that a whole bunch of us traveled to Onaero for New Years last year - it was a blast, I love the beaches on the West Coast of New Zealand with black sand, rocks and generally weather worn look. I guess its because these are the beaches I grew up with, I do remember visiting Mount Manganui Beach and seeing white sand and thinking it was like something from TV!
This New Years we won't be in Taranaki, instead we will be heading over to the Wairarapa to spend time in Martinborough.
I hope you all have a great New Years Eve, whatever you are doing and that 2014 is fabulous for you xoxo
