#Auckland Botanic Gardens #Wellington Botanic Garden

Spending a beautiful sunny day @Auckland Botanic Gardens

It consists of nice small gardens like Herb, Rock, African, Rose and Edible but surely no comparison to amazing @Wellington Botanic Garden πŸžοΈβ˜€οΈβ›°οΈπŸŽ‘πŸšΆ

#SenVietnameseKitchen&Bar

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

#DuderRegionalPark

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

#TaneMahuta #TāneMahutaWalk #WaipouaForest

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‘
