Before Ohakune there was Omaru Falls for my Birthday

Sometimes words just do not do justice for some of the things you get the privilege to witness. I had a very special birthday.

Omaru Falls - New Zealand

It was a bit of a hike through some bush, flooded fields and a swollen river over this rope bridge. Fun stuff!

The look on my face when I first saw the falls

I know, I am a complete sap....

I didn't have much to say while I was there. I was in awe and just sat there taking it all in and taking a lot of photos, in between wiping away my so called water proof mascara!

A very very special birthday that I will never forget!


  1. Cher, happy birthday, belated of course! You are 41? You look like you are in your twenties...woooowwww! I love your beautiful photos--going over that bridge...yikes! What a beautiful trip!!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. This is a marvelous and beautiful place! I can understand that you have been speechless for a while there and that you felt wonderful!
    Thank you for sharing the photos and the video!

  3. Thank you both for visiting and I am glad you enjoyed the pics and video. I didn't even know my friend found the video setting on my camera! A pleasant surprise later! I loved every minute of it.

    I HIGHLY recommend the northern island, King Country which is the Western Side. So much to see and an every changing country side with riches everywhere. If you really truly want to get away from it all, that is where you want to go, but still be in reach of small towns to get what you need to be comfortable.
