Auckland Anniversary Weekend

Last weekend was a long one for those living in Auckland area as the city celebrated its 175th birthday! So with three days off and beautiful summery weather there was just one thing to do…yup, go the the beach ;) However this time we were a bit wild because on each day we actually went to a different beach. Living wild…that's us ;)

I know that you are probably really sick of all those photos of beaches and ocean but I cannot help myself! Summer in New Zealand is absolutely stunning and this year we are having a really good one. Basically since Christmas temperatures did not drop below 25C so we are using every opportunity we have to go to the beach, swim, relax and admire the views.

Do not be fooled by those leaves on the ground. It is not a sign of autumn. Summer is definitely here. We have been sleeping with windows wide open and for about a month and talking every night about buying a decent sized fan (we still have not done anything about it…).

Driving back home

We finished off our stay in Whitianga with a walk on the beach and then we started heading back home. Julian decided it was time to explore some new routes so the drive took as almost twice as long, however it was totally worth it. The scenery was breathtaking. Even though I have been living here for over nine years NZ beauty still gets me…every single time...

First road trip

We started New Year with a mini road trip to Coromandel. Julian had a few gigs booked there so we decided it would be a good idea to use the time between the shows to get some rest, go for long walks on the beach, admire the views, enjoy summer and eat some delicious food.
