In early June we went back to New Zealand. You might remember our first trip to the South Island in October last year. This time our plan was to explore the North Island for a bit longer than a week. We flew into Auckland to spend a few days there, to catch up with a friend we haven't seen in almost 10 years and to just explore the city . We could have spend so much longer here and there are so many great outdoor activities which you can do just outside the city which means we have to come back with a bit more time.
Here are a few photos from our first days. We had breakfast (twice) at the wonderful Good One cafe in Ponsonby, which is a lovely neighbourhood with lots of great shops, cafes & restaurants. We went up to Mt Eden and looked over the city and walked around the big crater.
