Awesome Auckland

The City of Sails has captured our hearts. From its bustling harbor filled with ferries to the Jetson-esque Sky Tower surrounded by charming neighborhoods.

City planners seem to have worked hard on making Auckland a worldclass city, and it shows. It has an uber-efficient public transport system paired with user-friendly, clean, attractive cityscapes.

And it hasn’t forgotten its heritage.

We’re always on the lookout for cities with that great combination of livability and practicality. Auckland is a modern, high tech city with a sense of history and a clear vision of the future. Places that exhibit all of these qualities are rare, but Auckland excels on all counts.

Our original plan was to spend a week in Auckland, but due to circumstances beyond our control, we aren’t able to do that now.

So Auckland has left us wanting more … and if there was ever a place on this entire trip where we’d like to spend more time, Auckland is it!

Happy Trails,
James and Terri
