We love a good road trip - apart from going somewhere different as a family, it's a chance for Symon and I to usually hold a good conversation in the front of the car while we drive, without too many inturruptions. There was the occasional, "stop him from singing to the music" or "I'm feeling like I'm going to be sick" shrilled at us from the back of the car, but for the most of it we were in the blissful land of uninterrupted grown up talk.
This road trip took us to the cute and slightly retro town of Dargaville (Northland, New Zealand). Dargaville is a small town with amazing second hand (thrift) stores. We had heard about a few boxes of comics hidden away in one of them, and let's just say that the boys hit a gold mine!

I also was so thankful that Symon thought of me when he discovered this amazing cake plate (Old Foley, Staffordshire, England). Beautiful and just begging to be laden with cupcakes and biscuits.
We had a tonne of fun and will definitely be making a trip there again sometime, not only to scout out the thrift stores, but also enjoy some of the other sights and places.
We ♥ Dargaville (especially the old tram house and boat house)
Looking forward to more holiday road trips with the family sometime soon.
