Mount Maunganui Trip

A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Mount Maunganui in Tauranga for a a mini-holiday. Although I only had a few days off work, it was a much needed break. We went the week before Easter because we thought it would be less busy. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t the greatest but we still made the best of it.

I’ll share what we got up to and the food we tried down below so if you’re thinking of heading to the Mount any time soon, this post may give you some ideas.

Auckland Seafood Festival

Today is Auckland Anniversary day so I thought I’d make a relevant post. I know I already talked about the Auckland Seafood Festival on my last post. However, that was just a tidbit and today, I’m sharing my experience of the actual festival as I went on Saturday night and I was able to try the food on offer.

I also wanted to post this because you still have a chance to go to the Auckland Seafood Festival because it’s on today from 11am – 4pm. If you fancy some great seafood, head over to the city and also enjoy Auckland’s day.

ASF Launch + OOTD

Yesterday afternoon, I attended the launch for the Auckland Seafood Festival thanks to the awesome people at Zomato. The launch was before the festival opened to the public and it gave us a great insight of what the festival is all about, what it is trying to achieve and what will be on offer during the festival.

I love seafood so I had great pleasure trying some of the best seafood on offer. If you’ve bought tickets and want to know what to expect in the next few days, read more below. If you haven’t bought tickets but you’re considering going, then this may persuade you.

Devonport, Auckland

One of my favourite places in the North Shore is Devonport. It has great old buildings, it’s close to the water and you can go up to two volcanic cones to see a different view of Auckland.

This quaint little town has so much character. I love going here for a stroll on a good day. Luckily, I live quite close to Devonport so one Sunday, we woke up early and had brunch in one of the cafes along the main road then we went for a walk around town.

Click below for a few photos I took during this sunny winter day.

Travel: Milford Sound

This week’s #BlogGreatness theme is Beautiful. I thought it was a great opportunity to continue my Queenstown holiday travel series by posting the most beautiful place I have been to in New Zealand.

Milford Sound is breathtakingly beautiful and we had a once in a lifetime experience going there by choosing to fly rather than drive from Queenstown.

To know about our epic adventure, see below.

Travel: Arrowtown & Wanaka

This week’s #BlogGreatness theme is travel. I know I recently travelled to Melbourne but since I haven’t looked at the photos I’ve taken from that trip, I thought I’d continue on and write about our Queenstown holiday last year.

I already made a post about Queenstown here on the blog but we also visited Arrowtown and Wanaka. I will focus on these two places today. We rented a car and did a day trip from Queenstown.

See below for more photos and to see what we got up to.
