Wanderlust – Auckland, New Zealand

26 Oct

If there was ever a place where it was impossible to feel sad, Wanderlust festival is it. There’s no other way to describe it.
There’s a buzz in the atmosphere that is electric – the result of a bunch of like-minded people who appreciate a day of fitness in the sun, the most delicious healthy foods and lots of happy faces.
Me and my friend Bridget went along to this festival with no yoga training whatsoever. We didn’t have a mat or any exercise gear.
We just wanted to observe, as yoga has been a thing we’ve both wanted to tick off the bucket list for a while now.
We got to kick back and watch a lot of ladies (and a few men) decked out in their Lulu Lemon gear twist themselves into different positions in the hot sun. Meanwhile, we munched on Little Bird goodness and slurped on The Beverage Boy juices.

Upon setting foot in Auckland, I was somewhat intimidated, for I have been away from larger cities and crowds for awhile. This bustling city is where 1/3 of New Zealand ‘s population crowds together resides. It is also one of the most popular gateways to the North Island. Due to its liveliness and thriving trade, people often have the misconception that Auckland is the capital of New Zealand. (In case you too are mistaken, it is not.)

I did not have an exact destination in mind. Instead, I allowed my curiosity to lead me. Symbols of interest called to me and I followed. My aimless free-minded trail led me to art galleries, interesting alley, a windy harbour and roads that are graced with intriguing wall art.

Captive and bounded, but his heart remains free. Catch me if you can!

Stop and admire the art on streets. Are you thinking what I am thinking? There’s something intriguing about someone’s back.

Our fourth (and final) Easter in NZ was celebrated in the company of our dear Canadian comrades.  After celebrating many a holiday, birthday, and festival together, and journeying quite closely with each other over these past three years, it’s hard imagine not being here for special gatherings like this.

Waitemata Harbour, Auckland, New Zealand

19 Dec

First stop we take the ferry to Devonport, a quaint seaside village on the north shores. I immediately rechristen it Wallasey as the neighbouring ferry is going to Birkenhead. I can’t help wondering if the person who named it came from Liverpool and was likening the journey to a ferry across the Mersey. Wallasey, sorry Devonport, is a laid back place full of Victorian wooden villas, little shops, galleries and cafe bars. We give the village centre a wide berth and walk along the front in the direction of Cheltenham Beach. We take a detour on route to North Head, an old navy fort on the site of an extinct volcano. We follow the footpath to the summit, which only takes around 15 minutes, and enjoy fine views of Auckland harbour, Rangitoto Island and Cheltenham beach. Periodically we come across old guns and watch towers from when it was an active military installation. Apparently they prepared and trained for an invasion that never came.

The first really hot weekend we’ve had in Auckland, New Zealand since I moved here in March. We went down to Cheltenham Beach to catch the sun. The tide was low and the water was really clear and beautiful. That island you can see in the distance is Rangitoto. Beautiful day!
