At the start of the year, I shared part 1 of my Sydney trip with my sister. I mentioned there that I went back but the second time around I was by myself. Today’s post will be all about my second trip where I explored the northern part of Sydney such as Manly and Dee Why.
Last December, I had two trips to Sydney. Today’s post is all about my first trip with my sister. It was our first time in Sydney and first overseas trip together. We had an amazing time and experienced how hot Australian summer can be.
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.
It has been nearly 2 months since I went to Melbourne for the first time. I don’t know why it has taken me this long to post it here on the blog. Thankfully my Melbourne memories is still fresh in my mind and I can still share my experience with you all.
I took so many photos from my trip so I’m going to split it into a few parts. This first part is my overview of Melbourne and what I got up to first. I did do a lot of shopping and eating too but I’ll save that for another post.
During the Easter weekend, we had a spontaneous day trip. We went to Matakana, Pakiri Beach and Omaha which are a bit up north from where we live in Auckland.
We were lucky the weather was nice and sunny and it didn’t rain until the afternoon so we were able to spend some time at the beach.
See below for some photos I took of our little day trip.
