Camping in Kaikoura for Easter?

Image: Kaikoura Top 10

One thing that I especially remember from my childhood is Easter. I remember how my grandmother decorated the garden’s walls to look like bunnies had hopped over them. I remember how we kids scrambled to find those pesky hidden eggs, sometimes fighting over who saw the egg first and who got to eat it. We then celebrated afterwards with our discovered treats and a BBQ.

It felt like such a magical holiday, especially with my parent’s and grandparents’ efforts to arouse our imaginations and wonderment. I hope this Easter season is one of joyous memory-making bliss and that the memories are sunshine, adventure, connection, and love, just like mine.

Hi there! I’m Megan, an absolute lover of words, literature, books, stories, anything that has to do with writing, reading, imagining. Because of my passion, I decided to make writing my life, and with that, I decided to study BA Languages at the University of Pretoria and am happy to report that I made my dream come true by graduating and becoming a travel writer. During my final year I wrote for my campus newspaper, the PDBY, where I learned to trust my writing voice. Now, as I sit here writing my petit little bio, I feel more in love with writing than I’ve ever been. Turns out, like much of my personality, my writing can equally showcase both the calm and put-together, as well as the crazy.
