This weekend we went away again, this time to a small (or should I say tiny) town called Naseby. It is a beautiful little town in the Maniototo region (about 2.5 hours from Dunedin) which has a permanent population of only 100 people. This increases dramatically over the holiday season though to over 3,000 people who enjoy, like we did, wandering through the forest, playing in the water races and ponds and just generally lazing around.
Naseby is also home to the national centre for Curling - which became quite popular after the winter Olympics. We went to have a look one day and the children then had a go the next day - after putting on a few more layers of clothing! They really enjoyed it - and we enjoyed the fact that they wouldn't accept any money at the centre for the experience. Not often that that happens! Apart from the occasional tense moment (I won't go into that in too much detail here, but thanks Mum for putting up with it!) we had a great weekend with great weather!
