Guest Post: Tornadoes and Tigers

Photos by Silent Sequoias 

Hi readers, my name is Dane and I write a blog called Tornadoes and Tigers.
Soné has been a friend of mine for many years now, I even studied graphic design with her a little while back!

I have to admit that one of the things I'm most envious about is how Soné quite often packs up and journeys off on adventures with her husband. I love seeing all the photos and hearing all the stories when she gets back. She's such a bizzy body and a free spirit, that is what has inspired me for these photos today : )

Anyway I hope you enjoy these pictures and are having an amazing week!

Thanks for having me Soné

Our Roadtrip up Northland, New Zealand

finding our next destination

our campsite the first night

mike & I snorkeling

Here are some holiday snaps I have been wanting to share with all of you. Me & Mike decided to take a road trip up Northland during the school holidays for 3 days.

We stayed at DOC camp sites by the beach whist discovering some snorkeling along the rocks which was mind blowing! It was my first time snorkeling, at first it was very daunting but as the day progressed I managed to have build some confidence. I did however had my first panic attack!

My next investment will be an Underwater Polaroid camera, they are only $19.99!!

The nameless cat



Welcoming a new random cat into the family.... once again lol ! Gosh it's like I am becoming the crazy cat lady. Cats just seem to make our home theirs. I guess it's probably because I feed any cat who strolls along of course.

Why don't you help me name him? All names are welcome ....

Goat Island

Last weekend we enjoyed a bit of Goat Island. People go there to snorkel as the marine life is out of this world. The fish was so tame we could even touch them. I am off on another adventure but I have scheduled a few post for you.

The Redwoods Treehouse & Matakana Farmers Market

Last weekend we visited my sister-in-law. She took us to Goat Island, The Redwoods Treehouse & Matakana Farmers Market in Auckland, New Zealand. The highlight was seeing the The Redwoods Treehouse from a distance as it was on private property - (it would be perfect to spend a romantic afternoon in).

What an amazing little market it was, we found all sorts of arts & craft - loads of fresh gourmet food & sweet pastries. I highly recommend it! We spotted out Goat Island, as we will take our diving gear next time. Gosh New Zealand is an amazing place for adventure!!
