What did you do on your weekend?

Hi All,

I hope you all had a fun and exciting weekend!

My weekend started with a great night out which included watching the Royal Wedding, checking out some nice bars, meeting a many friends and having a lot of fun!

After that massive party night I decided to get out my flat and visit one of the most famous memorial places in Auckland – One Tree Hill – a 182 metre volcanic peak.

I heard about this spot a couple of times and I always passed the hill on my way to work when still used to live out of town.

Finally a friend of mine and I decided to climb this hill.

On our way to One Tree Hill we stopped in Onehunga where you have a great shopping opportunity because they have a big factory outlet shopping centre with sweet as reduced clothes. (check out www.dress-smart.co.nz if you feel like spending a day in a shopping mall!)

After a nice and successful speed shopping experience,  we continued our journey even if it was a very windy and rainy sunday. We walked up the hill through the beautiful parks which surround the hill and after a 30 minute walk we reached the top of the hill.

On the top you have beautiful view over the whole super city and the sea.

For detailed information about the history of One Tree Hill I recommend to check out www.cornwallpark.co.nz while listening to the song One Tree Hill by the famous band U2.

I absolutely enjoyed this walk and especially the view on top of the hill and I definitely recommend it to all of you guys if you haven’t been up there already!

Have a great start into the week!

Cheers

Paul
