Auckland

If you know me you know this was going to be a blog post at some point! I love Auckland but it hasn't always been that way. I use to have a strong hate towards Auckland for various different reasons, however, after living on the north shore for a year I have come to live this city I once hated.

I grew up north of Auckland however, that changed seven years ago when the town I was living in became a part of the Auckland supercity, that meant i technically lived in Auckland. Not going to lie I despised Auckland for making this change. I grew up on a farm in the country, I in no way wanted to be a part of the city. however moving closer to the city this year I have fallen in love with Auckland, which is a sentence I was certain i would never say.

Some of the places  love in Auckland include:

Piha



My favorite because was an hour and a half away from where I was living in Auckland which meant, I had to find another beach. Granted Piha is still 40-60 minutes away from where I live, it was still closer and also close to family which is obviously ideal.


Titirangi



I love Ttitirangi, I also have family that live in Titrangi thus, I have gotten to know the place fairly well. I love the cafes, the bush and the overall vibe of the place.

Albany

I have uni in Albany and spend most of my time there so it would be very wrong fir me not to include it in this post. I have found my favorite cafe, and a lot of my other favorite spots in Albany it definitely feels like home now.

What place makes you feel at peace? Do you have a special place?

  1. Oh wow! Those views seem so gorgeous. I would like to go to Auckland one day for sure! This might sound crazy but I have always felt weird kind of peace in New York City. I love how everything is moving and going forward. I kind of feel that I have million opportunities and that I can achieve all my goals there. At home in Finland I mostly feel a bit stuck. It feels like nothing happens and it doesn't feel good because I really want to achieve and see a lot. NYC offers possibilities for both of those. I might be walking fast with a schedule but I still have special kind of inner piece there. :)

    1. I know exactly what you mean, I have always lived in the country and while I love the bush and taking time out. I could never live in the country again. Definitely a city girl at heart.

    1. It is amazing, there is the beach and the perfect place to relax and half an hour or less away you're in the middle of the city. It is amazing!

  8. I used to have this secret little spot in a forest near my childhood home where I went to sit on the rock and just watch the clouds go by. Instant stress relief.
