24 Things To Do In Auckland

24 Things To Do In Auckland

Having come back from holiday and having a couple of weeks of school holiday left, I thought I would compile a list of things to do in Auckland.

I scoured about 4 or 5 different travel websites and read through the many things they suggested to be done in Auckland, many of these things are free, and took the ones I thought would be most important and interesting to do.

The View From The top

The View From The top

On a sunny-ish day, last week, a Monday to be precise. We took a trip up the Sky tower in Auckland to see the view from the top. I have done this a couple of times before in different cities (Sydney and Melbourne)  and really enjoy looking at the city from so high up. I wanted to go at sunset so we would get the best of the city in both daylight and darkness but He wasn’t going to wait till that late at night to go. Continue reading “The View From The top”

First day at school

First day at school

So today is my first day as year 0 teacher. I’m excited but nervous there is so much i still need to do to feel ready but it will have to wait as i don’t have the time now. I’m up super early to go in and print out my resources for this week and make sure everything in the classroom is ready for the kiddies.

I have spent the whole weekend planning, cutting, surfing Pinterest for ideas and scavenging my house for supplies. Because of this my blogging has fallen by the way side. Sorry!! I will try and get back on schedule and make sure that i have at least 2 posts a week up. I have managed to make sure my weekly Photography Spotlight is ready for the next 6 weeks though.

So here we go and lets see what mayhem the day brings.

Te Papa

So on our first full day in Wellington we decided to visit Te papa. This is the national museum of New Zealand it covers a wide range of areas from the natural world and local environment to history of the Maori and New Zealand.  We spent most of the day here as there is much to see, The most amount of time was spent in the newest exhibition Gallipoli: the scale of our war. We did queue for about 45 mins to get in but it was well worth it.
