Taranaki named top tourist destination

New Plymouth is an amazing place to live.

The Daily News had an article on 5th March 2014 that named Taranaki  as the top tourist destination!

Apparently it even caught the survey organisers by surprise, beating the Coromandel and Milford Sound to take top spot on a list of New Zealand’s best destinations. They said   “Travelers are looking at Taranaki like a best-kept secret.”

To anyone that lives here, this is not a secret.  It might be off the beaten track but its a fabulous place with such accessible diverse beauty.

Not only is there natural beauty but I love how in this region there is a spiritual unity and strength amongst the churches too. This unity is part of the blessing we live in.

Psalm 133 says

1 Look! How good and how pleasant it is
when brothers live together!
2 It is like fine oil poured on the head
which flows down the beard—
Aaron’s beard,
and then flows down his garments.
3 It is like the dew of Hermon,
which flows down upon the hills of Zion.
Indeed, that is where the Lord has decreed
a blessing will be available—eternal life.
