Ending the week with dinner @Sen Vietnamese Kitchen & Bar

Spending a much awaited evening with adorable mates. This lovely restaurant fills you with joy as soon as you enter, presenting beautiful ambiance especially the roof seating and dim lightening with splendid views.

Was taken aback with a pleasant surprise during the dinner (revelation around reviews).

The only struggle was to find parking during much awaited T20 game between Blackcaps and India here at Mount Eden in Auckland. A first world problems perhaps!

Looking forward to more such evenings to bask this exceptionally good summer.πŸ₯˜πŸ›πŸ½οΈπŸ’πŸ₯—πŸš


Spending Waitangi Day doing tramping @Duder Regional Park

A beautiful regional park along-with farm. The main track of 3 Kms is well marked with additional 3 Kms leading to extremes of park all the way to seashores is left to the exploration of those feeling adventurous on such a bright sunny day.

Worth every minute spent covering these 6 Kms while enjoying awesome views of sea from different directions, courtesy Sunshine for hanging around till the end during quite a hot day otherwise.

Thanks to Michael for suggesting this hidden gem!πŸŽ‘πŸžοΈβ˜€οΈβ›°οΈ

Finally at our destination @Tane Mahuta via @Tāne Mahuta Walk @Waipoua Forest

Worth driving through half of the day see this wonderful Kauri tree.

This largest Kauri known to stand today is well preserved and quite a tourist attraction πŸŒ³πŸžοΈπŸŽ‘

Roaming around beautiful @Omeru Reserve
Enjoying lovely waterfalls around this reserve @Waitangi Waterfall and @Omeru Waterfall

Getting out of town for first time in past 4 months since the disaster.

What can be better timing to revive this lonely looking space! πŸžοΈπŸŒ³β›°οΈ


Celebrating the special day @ Miss Istanbul

One thing I like about this day is that it falls during the festive season and no matter what the situation is, you have to go out and celebrate.

This little Turkish restaurant is in middle of Ponsonby Central. Having a great time enjoying some of the Turkish delicacies which can never go wrong and we found Apple Tea here as one of the best.🍽️πŸ₯˜πŸ›πŸŒ―πŸŸβ˜•πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰
