  1. Raglan was my first stop out of Auckland with my newly purchased campervan. I loved my time in the area, and I didn’t even give surfing a go! I’m living on the West Coast now and have been missing the weather until the last couple weeks – we’ve had five straight days of 27+ weather. I will be back though!
