On Wednesday, we headed to Manly to spend a few nights away by the beach with Novotel Manly Pacific. We were lucky enough to hang out with Ellie and Shawn Lowe (more on them later!), who showed us some of the sweet local hot spots by Manly Beach such as Shelley Beach and The Boathouse Cafe! Although we didn't have the greatest weather while we were there, we still made the most of it by spending our time on the beach, in cafe's, or swimming on the hotel's rooftop pool (which had the most beautiful view over all of Manly - seriously!)

Our favourite cafe's that we found during our stay were Fika Swedish Kitchen and Hemingways, and we also discovered the phenomenon of bacon + egg rolls (or in my case, egg rolls!). Ohhhhh my goodness, so so good! Can't believe we hadn't tried them before. New Zealand, you need to up your breakfast game!

Thanks to Novotel Manly Pacific for hosting us whilst we were in your neck of the woods - we honestly had the best time staying with you! Being able to stay literally 10 steps away from the beach was such a treat and you treated us so well. :-)

P.S. If you make it to the end of this post, you'll find a vlog of our first day in Manly :-) We've been daily vlogging our trip - head to our YouTube channel to see the rest!
