Mount Maunganui

Last week I was in Mount Maunganui for a work hui-meeting. We travel there a few times a year and I have to say it is one of my favourite work trips for CORE Education Ltd.

Mount Maunganui is a short drive from Tauranga airport and a beautiful beach town. We stay at The Atrium Apartments which is really nice and only a short 2 minute walk to the beach.

It is an awesome place to get some exercise in as you are amping to get outside and enjoy the scenery. I love walking down the beach, running along the beachside baordwalk and walking right around the Mount, it takes about 45 minutes and is not too difficult. If you want a challenge, you can climb up to the summit, no idea how long that will take as I haven’t pushed myself to do it…yet!
There are lots of shops and great restaurants in the Mount and Tauranga is a 10 minute drive so easy to go and explore there too.

I would LOVE to bring my husband and kids here for a holiday too. Hopefully the next time we come up for work I will fly them in. The Atrium is a great place to stay for families, has a pool and spa and rooms are great value.

The Mount is a def must visit in NZ and I will be coming back again, hopefully with the man and kids in tow!


Hello world!

Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to my family travel blog.

I love to travel and as a young 20 something, I travelled extensively through out the world.  My husband and I have also spent a lot of time travelling together and now our family has grown with the addition of 2 girls, we are keen to do more trips as a whanau/family.  That’s where you come in!

This blog is for

  1. Sharing – I want to share tips, ideas, plans, information, photos, advice, reviews etc about our trips both in New Zealand and overseas…and I want you to comment and share yours too
  2. Learning – I want to learn from others so it can  help inform our travel plans, destinations and ultimately improve our family trips
  3. Networking – I also hope to provide a network where either like minded travellers can communicate and hopefully travel together or swap houses, providing a much cheaper and easier family holiday in each others homes or holiday houses

So as you can see I need you to get in here and make the most of it.  Please follow my blog, add comments and share with your own networks.  Life is short, great holidays and memories are the stuff that makes it all worthwhile!
