Queens Birthday weekend in Auckland…

Hey all!

Hope you had a nice and relaxed long Queens-Birthday-weekend. I will tell you what I have done.

Saturday was quite reaxed, just did some organising stuff and getting prepared for the winter with a thermos flask.

Later in the evening I enjoyed some movies while tasting a nice New Zealand wine with my flatmates.

On the sunny Sunday me and a friend went to Howick to visit the Historical Village there, which was really impressive. When you see all these old houses, you can’t imagine that people lived in this way just 150 years ago with nothing to do in the evenings. We talked to the woman – who is welcoming all of the visitors- and asked her, what the people did in the cold, dark winter evenings. She answered, that they just went to bed. This seems to be unimaginable, also when you see the old pictures of Auckland, which was pretty rural and small in the old times. But the Historical Village is a really good idea for a day out of Auckland – full of history!

Monday, Queens Birthday, I used to go shopping at the outlet shopping center Dress Smart in Onehunga! I was successful like girls always are, when they go shopping…;-) But it was really crowded….so the better way for a relaxed shopping expedition would be during the week.

So I hope you also had a successful weekend and if you want to know more about how to get to these places just contact me.

Have a nice start in the week and see you all at the next PuB NiGHT.

Cheers, Caro
