January 2012. I had my mind set on exploring a very remote part of New Zealand: the Catlins. I took a bus trip and decided to spend a few days in Curio Bay. When I arrived, the sun was shining and Hector’s dolphins were swimming in the surf. In the evening we went to look at the Yellow-Eyed Penguins coming to shore. What a beautiful place! I was very happy with my choice to not rush through this amazing area and to stay in this cute, little, remote town for a bit. I stayed at one of my favourite hostels ‘Lazy Dolphin Lodge’ (also mentioned in this post). The next day, I went for a walk and these huge, dark clouds came rolling in. I loved how the clouds were getting dramatically darker! Surprisingly enough, it didn’t even rain that badly. A few hours later it was sunny again. Unbelievable how quickly the weather changed. And what an awesome place this was, I love it!

We stumbled upon Curio Bay a couple of years back and had one of the most memorable days of our world trip. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for the reminder.
That is so great to hear! It’s a special little place. Thanks for sharing and for commenting!
