Journeys: New Plymouth

After Tauranga, we drove to New Plymouth. Leaving the Bay of Plenty close to the east cost, we eventually found ourselves following the western coast before arriving in the Taranaki region. Here are photos – long overdue.

Mt Taranaki (aka Egmont)  — which you can see for kilometers (or miles if you prefer)

on the way home, we stopped at the Waitomo Glowworm caves – which was glorious.
