Woman Care Trust organised free 2 x buses to Coromandel for 110 ladies of Indian Community. The Journey started with reciting religious prayer by the ladies in the bus which filled up the atmosphere with religious & spiritual feeling. The ladies get positive energy with reciting these prayers and also get peace of mind. “Hot Water Beach” was the first stop of the tour. Hot Water Beach is an NZ Must Do and one of its most dramatic places. From the sound of its surging waves to the fierce bite of hot sand underneath your bare feet at low tide, Hot Water Beach presents a landscape and an atmosphere like nowhere else. The ladies captured beautiful moments and enjoyed a lot with their friends. The next stop was to visit New Zealand’s steepest railway “Driving Creek Railway”. The railway was booked to take ladies Climb aboard for a captivating one-hour railway journey and be inspired by the story of one man’s lifetime passion to bring Art, Conservation and Engineering together to create Driving Creek. This railway is newly built rather than being an old line that has been restored. It is New Zealand’s only narrow-gauge mountain railway. The ladies don’t want to miss any opportunity to dance on Punjabi folk songs with their friends. This trip give the ladies an opportunity to enjoy to the fullest and dance to forget their worries and pains. They don’t need to think of their steps or shy in front of their friends. Also, this keep the ladies connected to their Punjabi Culture. All the ladies were happy to visit the beautiful beach that stretches as far as their eye can see and vising the train was a chance to know about New Zealand culture. This trip took the ladies to their college fun days and for few hours they kept themselves away from all worries of life.
All the ladies were very thankful to the Woman Care Trust in organising this trip, as they got an opportunity to navigate new place in New Zealand , sightseeing and communicate with more people. It was a golden opportunity for those ladies who have just moved to New Zealand and have never travelled before.
After a long day, all the ladies were tired but at the same time went back with the beautiful memories of the fruitful time spent in exploring New Zealand, developing social network , get rid of depression & loneliness.
