From the small town of Kobarid you can follow the amazingly aqua marine glacial river Soča up stream to find the Kozjak waterfall tucked away. It's uphill through the forest and crosses some WW2 trenches from the Italian front, as well as some small churches and a BRILLIANT Indiana Jones-esque swing bridge. If you take the circular route back to the town you walk through alpine fields which have lots of brightly coloured bee hives and some nice cows. This is in the Triglav National Park so you are surrounded by the 89000ft Julian Alps. Back in Kobarid you can get a cheap pint in one of the little pubs there. It's ace!
A campsite situated yards from the stunning Hahei beach. There's plenty of room to pitch up in this no nonsense, quiet site. Lots of communal barbecues and super retro wood chalets if you fancy. We had the best 7am swim in the sea, from which you can see Tuis in the trees, and hear them all around. There were plenty of bunnies hopping about too. You can walk to Cathedral Cover and Hot Water Beach from here too.
A specialist in vintage cookbooks run by a brilliant lady named Bonnie who really knows her stuff! She will find you books based on the type of illustration you like, the nationality of food, era, illustrator, brand sponsorship. It's small and cram packed, you can easily lose a day here. Prices range from a couple of dollars to hundreds (she showed me a first edition illustrated by a Mr Andrew Warhol!).
