New Zealand – Auckland

i landed in new zealand on 2 july 2013, and was planning to go for a working holiday backpacking adventure. auckland was the first city i landed in and i stayed there for 5 days to rest and make plans of the future months in new zealand… here’re some novice photos i took when i was there… the first photo was of my hotel when i first reached new zealand. it was a single room and had a small view of the sea. there, i hibernated a lot and was searching around for a plan without a clue – i survived on cup noodles which i brought from singapore.

here’re some photos of auckland…

And then i took a walk to the auckland harbour, which is a very very nice place, with lots of yachts and sails docking at the harbour. The sky was sunny and birds were soaring in the sky. There are many ferries going to the many islands that are lying around the auckland harbour.

After stumbling over the harbour, i stumble my way back to the hostel…

the next day, i decided to visit this place called One Tree Hill… the hill doesn’t have only one tree, in fact, it has many many sheeps, and not forgetting many many trees too! it is a neighbourhood park, and can be reached by the public buses
