Hard on the heels of the honeymooners from Italy we met young couples from Austria and USA.
Both couples were married last year but chose to make use of better holiday options and the New Zealand summer.
The young couple from Sacramento California enjoyed the walk over to Orakawa Bay and also used our bikes to check out Anzac Bay before hitting the beach for some R & R.
They headed to Hobbiton on the way to Rotorua as the next stage of their New Zealnd adventure.
The Austrian couple had a swim on arrival and the following day headed up the Coromandel for a day out on the water - sailing with Winborne Sailing Adventures -checking out Mercury Bay and the surrounding islands - unfortunately they had very little wind so the sailing was a bit slow but they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
They headed south to check out the glow worm caves in Waitomo and the Kiwi House in Otorohanga on the way to Rotorua.
