One of my most favourite places in New Zealand would have had to have been Napier, which is situated in the North Island. Sadly, we did not get to spend much time here on our travels, but we were able to spend a night and morning there. This meant we were able to take a drive around the residential streets and then have a short wander through the middle of town, which boasted quite a few beautiful home and gift stores, and antique stores (my favourite!).
Having learned from our experience in Greytown, while driving through the overgrown, narrow, maze of streets, we made sure we had the camera ready to take some snaps of the absolutely stunning houses. There was definitely money in this place!! I was in home heaven, once again!
