Check out this picture of the view from one of the farms on our Farmstay program!
This week’s picture of the week is of two of our Farmstay Participants. Such a cool photo of them enjoying their time on the Farm 🙂
It has been quite a long time I did not post on the blog, but I won’t wait one more month for the next one I promise.
I hope you all are enjoying the end of the summer, even if the weather in that summer itself was not really great, that’s the least we can say.
As some of you may know I’m passionate about rugby and I’m now playing for the Eden R.F.C Club, near Eden Park, and this weekend was the last “friendly game” before competition kicks off next weekend. So we headed to Takapuna to take on our neighbours from the North Shore and unfortunately… we lost. You may have heard that the Super Rugby season is on, tickets are cheap, entertainment guaranteed : I really encourage you to go watch a game at Eden Park, and don’t be afraid to go alone, the supporters group, the Blue Army is always welcoming everyone in the Lower East Stand of the stadium.
On Sunday there was an International Culture Festival at the Mt. Roskill War Memorial Park, and even if I was not there my flatmates were and they told me that it was rather awesome for the food, especially if you were nostalgic about the German or French specialities…
I’ll keep you updated about the next events happening in Auckland, and from there if you have a picture that you want to share, don’t hesitate to send it to us to be the Picture of the Week, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi everyone the Picture of this week features the first game of the Super XV in rugby this season which occurred two weeks ago and I was there to see the Auckland Blues lose against the Canterbury Crusaders with a dramatic final.
If you don’t know anything about rugby, what you can see on the picture is a phase of the game called scrum.
The picture of the week comes from my weekend spent in the Northland, and is taken in the Waipoua Kauri Forest.
Kauri trees are the second biggest tree species in the world after sequoias and this is the largest Kauri tree in the world (you can find Kauris in Australia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands…).
This week, the picture of the week has been sent to us by Sascha who has been on our Hospitality and Tourism Work Experience Program living and working at the Chateau Tongariro at Whakapapa Village as you can see in the picture.
Around the Chateau you have a lot of walking tracks, including the mythic Tongariro Alpine Crossing and some sets for the Lord of the Rings trilogy. In Winter you are at the closest point from the Whakapapa ski field which is said to be the best spot to ski on the North Island…”
