The Coromandel region promises picturesque landscapes, blue skies and stunning beaches. Accessed within a few hours from Auckland, it's a popular getaway for folks looking for a little fun in the sun.
As you can imagine, the locals were even more shocked than we were by the unrelenting storm which dampened our time there. Who would ever have imagined that the last week of our year around the world would be shrouded in gloomy downpours?!
I'd say we made the best of it. And were eventually rewarded for our efforts.
