When Sky Tower is your best experience, you know you’re in trouble… Maybe a couple of days isn’t enough to justify this city, but I’m glad I didn’t set aside more days than that. So what did I do? First I headed for Auckland Museum (aucklandmuseum.com), which is located in a very elegant building. But by now I’ve been to my share of museums, so I must admit I’m a bit tired of that scene. As a consequence(?), I thought this one was nothing more than OK. The Maori display was the best. I also went for a stroll in the harbor area. Not much to see. Probably a lot better in the summertime. There were a few local neighborhoods I could have explored, but that I can get anywhere, well, almost. And when there’s nothing else to do I usually go shopping, but where…? Not much to choose from. In essence, been there, done that!
Big thanks to my fellow traveller Virginie Mariaux, who I met in Rotorua, New Zealand, for kindly letting me use her photo for this post!
