  1. Kaikoura Peninsula, New Zealand

  2. I looked up Kaikoura, NZ and that’s not it.


  3. It was a guess. A hopeful one, as I’d visited there in 1984. Lovely place.

    Alan :)

  4. Ah, New Zealand. It’s on my list of places to get to. Haven’t been able to yet.

    Now if the kids didn’t need clothes every six months (or less) . . .


  5. You were close, it is New Zealand, but a tiny island in Whangaparoa Bay on the North island, 36°30′47″ S, 174°47′10″E.

    I fully agree, New Zealand is a great place, this by looks like a great place to live!

  6. Motuora Island to be exact. I had to laugh when I saw the label for the Pukapuka River. I hiked along that river, further inland, over twenty years ago.


    PS Good catch. I wish I’d found it. I figured it was kiwi-ish.

  7. Congrats to Rogier, who found this tiny island off the North Island of New Zealand.
