Matamata is not just the home of Hobbiton, the famous LOTR movie set. This Waikato country town is worth stopping to stay for a night or few. You will find a variety of accommodation options at the Opal Hot Springs and Holiday Park. That’s right, hot springs! You could have a nice soak after hiking to the top of Wairere Falls which is a popular walk with amazing views. The best place to start though is at the information centre where you will find everything you need to enjoying a few days here. Matamat is also be a good base if you are going to Experience the Trilogy which includes Hobbiton, Te Puia and the Waitomo Glowworm Caves.
Well that’s it I guess! it’s that time of the year again where I set off around the world 🗺. Bags are packed, sold most of my stuff and I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. It’s overwhelming traveling on your own. No one has your back but you, your in a strange place, streets you don’t know with people you’ve never meet. Guess you could say it’s like been thrown in the deep end but I love it!!! I’m addicted!!! and I’m buzzing the count down is on!!!!! 🕗
Orca were in town yesterday! The individual at the front is Pickle. She is easier to identify due to her damaged dorsal fin. It is unknown how the damage occurred but she seems to do just fine without the missing part! 🐬
To my Asian sisters: after watching @imjennim 's recent video on age pressure, I thought I’d shed some light on my own experience on this topic and see if any of you feel the same. .
Growing up in a traditional Chinese family it is SO TRUE that women have been slabbed with an unspoken expiry date. It seems the ideal Chinese woman is married by 27, has children no later than God forbid 30 and she’s happily raising two children and developing into a full-fledged housewife by 40. .
Women who aren’t married by 30 are titled the ‘leftover’ women and are often looked down upon no matter how accomplished they are in their careers or personal development. .
Even at 23, having been in a long term relationship and yet to graduate uni, I’m starting to get hints from family about the topic of engagement and the need to start thinking about the quickly diminishing years of my youth. I’ve been told by relatives at every Chinese wedding ‘You’re next!’… ‘Hey Jenny it’s gonna be you soon’… .
But no... I’m not next. There is so much more to me than a child bearer and wife to so-and-so. Whilst these ARE the roles I aspire to hold in the future, I shouldn't have to bear the pressure of a ticking clock helf by others. .
This culture needs to change. There is an underlying gender discrimination at the foundation of the age pressure Asian women experience. .
Why is it okay for men to marry later but not for women? Why am I less desirable and destined with a lower chance of finding a partner if I choose to stay single till 30? .
We are valuable, worthy of and deserve love regardless of age.❤️❤️❤️ No one is allowed to tell you what you should and shouldn't be achieving BY a certain age. Follow your own pace girl xx
We are now working with @littleblackbirdeatery to provide catering options for our guests. We can arrange a DIY food box with the ingredients ready and prepped to cook a delicious three course meal as well as a fine dining dinner option. Or even better you can have your own private chef cook it all for you! 👨🏻🍳

I've yet to go anywhere that matches the rugged beauty of NZ's South Island. Mt Sunday is a particular must-see for fans of Middle Earth. || New Zealand, March 2015 🇳🇿
