    Travelling through busy New Zealand, means visiting the relaxing Hokianga (huge sand-dune)!
    ... with the special atmosphere, timelessness, peace, lifestyle, colour contrasts, sensibility for the nature ... (you will find your own expression for the reason staying here and enjoying it)

    "When there is a blue sky over the Tasman in the morning we are in for a lovely day, and if you hear the pheasant, we are in for a wet day."

    ... a little piece of west coast paradise in the far north of New Zealand (where the weather is mostly finer, warmer and dryer)

    ... and by the way: 
    Many have arrived with problems (burnout) and left with new ideas, solutions, power and energy!

    ... and by the way...
    to kiss a dolphin is awfully simple,
    to miss Opononi is simply awful!!!
