MATB x TGWF SOL adventures


Earlier this month the gorgeous Charlotte from The Goods We Found took our new SOL Straw wide brim on a wild teepee adventure in one of the most beautiful locations in New Zealand. Find out where below and get top tips on making this your next adventure.

We stayed at:
Tepee Matakana. The dreamiest trio of teepees set up surrounded by NZ bush. Each teepee furnished simply and beautifully with the most comfortable beds.

The highlight of my trip was:
seeing Boston explore and love new surroundings. He was so stoked to be sleeping in a teepee but also peaked on all the activities we did with him on this trip - train ride, pony rides and new beaches.

We ate:
at 2 amazing eateries. The first was The Farmers Daughter in Omaha. A cute cottage set beside the water with gardens growing fresh produce for the cafes dishes and flowers which they bunched and sold. The most divine food and setting. I cant wait to go back especially because they had a playground!! Then we had dinner at Jin Jin in Matakana - a modern asian eatery which served the most incredible dishes. The black bean beef stir fry and green thai curry were so tasty. The servings were massive and so well priced plus the interior/aesthetics is really nice. Recommend both these places.

One thing I wouldn't have survived there without:
my boobies. haha - a newborn in a teepee that had other guests in close proximity meant if she started crying through the night I needed to get her on that sweet nectar asap. PTL for boobs.

The song that will forever remind me of the trip is:
babe rainbow - peace blossom boogie

My best travel hack is:
take your own pillow. Then if you get a dud bed at least you have your beloved pillow to get you through the night. Lucky that wasn't the case on this trip!

One thing everyone must do while staying here is:
this is for parents...go to Matakana Country Park. It's amazing. Beautiful grounds, good cafe, so much entertainment for groms.
