ey guys its easter and I thought it was time to have a break away .
I was thinking somewhere nice weather,art deco and some nice vinyards.
eveyone will do all the booking themselves for accomodation, vinyard tour , i dont have a car I am hoping we can make a road trip. so let me know if you have a car.
I will be staying at the YHA hostel as its a lovely inexpensive place to stay is one of the best YHA in the country and is right on the beach.If you wish to stay here can do it online or by phone
https://www.yha.co.nz/booking/rooms (click on the link to have a look at the napier YHA) They have a mixture of rooms single,double, twin , two and three bed share rooms and 4 bed share bed rooms.If you wish to stay somewhere else thats fine its up to you we can still meet up . I n the share room You can arrange with others if you want to share a room or you will be put with other guests.
I will be doing a winery tour on the saturday http://www.grapeescape.net.nz/#!wine-tour/c1yws
( doing the half day $70 tour probably but i will confirm that closer to the time- but feel free to go on which tour you desire)
there is a national aquarium, nice walks, hire bikes to descover vinyards, art craft markets, art deco archtechiture and a range of other activities that the hostel can book for you once you are there.
I would recommend booking a vinyard tour before you go. I will confirm shortly the vinyard tour i am on and that if you wish to go on that one you can join me. I will be booking everything onece i get an idea who is going.
all in all should be a nice weekend away.
