The Catlins

Matai Falls

The day after arriving at Marama farm, I was invited to go on a day's outing to the Catlins, a corner of the country that many people have said was worth going to. I had decided to forego that trip earlier, knowing I was running out of time, but here was the offer, popping up out of nowhere! I decided to take it. So with Sonya (one of the girls living on the farm) and her friend Nadia, we headed off to see some of the sights.

All in all, a nice day's trip with some nice girls as well. It wasn't too cold that day and for all of these places, we had to walk a bit to get there. Fresh air and exercise! Thanks to the Catlins and Sonya!
