Other games included would you rather and eye spy, good old classics. The ...
... most touristic thing we got up to was climbing Mount Eden - an inactive volcano whose crater now covered in green grass! We thankfully got a really nice day and the views over the city were beautiful. Bustling city on one side, the harbour and sea in front with various green islands in the distance! Great first impressions of Auckland! ...
Just got back from a hike to the top of Mount Eden, the highest volcano in Auckland 200m high. 360 degree views were lovely. Helping Laura plan her bus routes as she is in New Zealand for the last 6 weeks of her travels now. She is also going to squeeze in a bit of Fiji. Good times! Will blog in a couple of days :)
