    Auckland, New Zealand

    February 11, 2014 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Not the hottest days, starting at 18C but expected to climb to 23C. Quite a number of passengers left the ship here, only to be replaced by others, some only travelling as far as Sydney. After disembarking, we took the ferry to Devonport, only a ten-minute ride across the bay. This is a quaint, old part of Auckland with attractive wooden houses, craft shops and cafes. We had a very relaxing stroll around before taking the ferry back to the city, where we headed for Sky Tower for some fantastic views across the city. I am not too good with heights, but still enjoyed it. We walked to Albert Park, which contained a number of illuminated Chinese figures and dragons in celebration, no doubt, of the Chinese New Year. We like Auckland. Very friendly.Read more
