Auckland

Hello everyone,

The last stop on my spring break trip was Auckland. Sarah and I were only there for about a day before we had to catch a flight back to Dunedin, but we still had fun. After checking in to our hostel and dropping off our stuff we went for a walk around downtown, stopping to gawk at the famous Sky Tower and going into all the stores and shops that caught our eye.

After wandering around downtown for a while we decided to walk to a nearby park. In the middle of the park was Mount Eden, a big hill that gave an amazing 360-degree view of the city and the harbor.

All too soon, it was time for us to go the airport and get on our plane back to Dunedin. The flight was short and easy, and since I had the window seat I got some great views of North Island coastline, mountains, and farmland.

This concludes my spring break trip with Sarah across the North Island. It was a lot of fun and I’m really glad we got to see so many amazing places. I will remember the many exciting things we visited on our trip like Napier’s astounding Art Deco architecture, Lake Taupo’s beautiful blue waters, and the entrancing sulfuric pools of Rotorua for a long time.

Until next time,

Rachael
