Napier

Napier Here we are, a new year, new adventures. You remember the snowy mountains we could see from Taupo? That’s our next stop. We thought. But the weather didn’t cooperate with this plan. The weather is very moody here. A jolly change between cold rain and burning sun. After all, there must be a reason for all the green. The mountains have to wait another day. We check the weather map and choose the only sunny place for our next trip: Napier. A beautiful small town in Hawke’s Bay at the east coast, completely renovated after an all destroying earthquake. It’s a lovely town, built in an Art Deco Style with the most beautiful and colourful houses I’ve ever seen – pink and baby-blue like sweet bonbons.

Forage

Halfway between Napier and Hastings is the Te Mata Figgery. From chutneys to ice-cream and salamis to jam, this local favourite must supply one of the most extensive arrays of figs in the country. Another pit stop I would highly recommend is the Strawberry Patch. Once upon a time there were queues out onto the street, every weekend during October and April for a taste of their world famous (it’s not, but it should be) fresh fruit ice-cream, but now it has expanded and diversified so that any day of the week, every day of the year, it’s my one stop shop for the best value fruit and vegetables that the region has to offer. Throw in the delicious gourmet selection of products crafted by local artisans, and it’s certainly hard to walk away with your hands empty. Especially after you spot the “Pick your own berries” sign.
