Fifth stop: Auckland!

auckcalle2“Hello, how are you?” And tried to greet Jeremy and Amanda, author of a very pretty blog of New Zealand called Here Comes the Sun , when I went to his car. From Buenos Aires, following his blog and when I heard he was traveling to Auckland first thing I did was contact her to get to know the city through their eyes.

What better to do with a real blogger? Undoubtedly, Auckland known better than any guide book and with it, you do not need a map to explore the city. Although it did not stop raining, we were able to reach neighborhood wanted most to know: Ponsonby . Where are the most expensive houses and at the same time, the most beautiful places to walk. One of them is the Fresh Market, a fair that takes place every Sunday and where they live a very pleasant climate. Accompanied by a DJ, people buy art designs, try different fruit stands or just sitting in a little coffee (up can find Argentine restaurant between options!



Besides showing places like Parnell and New Market , Amanda and Jeremy, also told me about the lifestyle of Auckland and even as was the origin of this city. Jeremy, who has lived here since birth, I explained that there were approximately 13 different cities joining and forming ended this way the enormous city that today is Auckland. It is very difficult to move without transportation because the distances are very long. However, that does not stop me from walking down the main street known as Queen Street (and all handsome streets that cut like Vulcan Lane ) and even closer to the port Britomart to eat in Mexico, the best Mexican restaurant in town (I would also say that the best where ever I was!).



To conclude my visit to this great city, I wanted to get an overview of Auckland and climbed 328 meters from the famous Sky Tower where you can see all the city lights. Its height at times can give a little dizzy but it’s thought to. View Auckland at night was not enough and decided to take a ferry to Devenport , a beautiful island that is located in front. With breakfast in hand, I walked away 15 minutes from Auckland city and met in full.

    Hi Rosario,

    Sorry that it rained during your time in Auckland. It is a bit hit and miss with the weather.

    Glad you got a chance to go to Devonport. It’s my favourite place in the Auckland area. Very relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I hope you were able to go up Mount Victoria. The views across to Auckland city are amazing.
