    Waitomo, New Zealand


Whenever I travel I look for those special experiences that the masses often miss. I’ll often read up about a destination and plan ahead. I like to know where I’m going, and what images I’d like to capture. I’m a Waitomo local, with a passion for travel and photography. So running a quality family tourism business is perfect, it beats working for a living! While I was growing up in this area my Father was working for the Dept of Conservation. Giving me so many opportunities to explore our area. So I thought I’d share some of these insights into this place I call Home, along with what I’ve discovered over my lifetime here. Enjoy……
