Coopers Beach in Doubtless Bay, New Zealand is a small coastal area in the Northland that holds a very significant part of my travel memories. For the first time in my life I was traveling in another country, and for the first time in my life I jumped in a car full of strangers on a whim.

A german couple, a Canadian, and I all ended up stopping in the Doubtless Bay area where we happened across a private cove hidden by a treacherous hike. Over a rocky crag that could only be traversed at low tide, with climbed over the crest of the hill and discovered paradise.

And for 2 weeks we stayed here, sleeping in out hammocks. This was the view I woke up to everyday, quite marvelous huh?

A photo essay about my hammock adventures will be landing this week, stay tuned!
