Auckland though... Full of very random events. Walking down the street we bumped into a performance art thing? There was dancing and acting and poetry. And there was also this celebratory statue.
Then heading down to the water the Gentleman Caller and I came across The Parkies! A parallel parking competition. I bet if my mom entered she would win hands down. Me? Forget it. We watched the finals. It was pretty neck and neck and all were on edge to see who would win.
Weird, right? Totally.
Pretty pretty water.
Pretty pretty Auckland.
Today I am thankful for making plans. We chose Auckland as the city to fly out of and then made the rest of the journey work. It was perfect. I love love loved New Zealand and will definitely be back one day. The air is so crisp and clean. The blues of the sea and sky are mesmerizing. The whole country is lush as anything but also so precarious since it's earthquake and volcano central. Just an outstandingly beautiful and friendly country.
