Weekend Getaways from Taupo  

I had my flight from Bangalore to Auckland via Kuala Lumpur. On arriving at Auckland, I was welcomed by Auckland's sunny and fantastic weather (21 degrees Celsius) which is quite rare. I hopped on a shuttle bus that took me straight to my Airbnb - The Trafalgar House. This is a beautifully restored 130-year-old mansion run by extremely kind and sweet hosts Kathy and David. Located in the quiet neighbourhood of Onehunga, the bus stop is just 2-mins away from the property where you get frequent buses to the City Centre.I spent 2 nights in Auckland. If you want to explore the city, you must head to the city centre and get a feel of the busy city life. Auckland's sky observation tower provides a great view of the city from a height of 220m. There are some cool and "expensive" bars and restaurants around. Cornwall Park is one of the must visit places when in Auckland. It is a refuge for bikers, runners, picnickers and travellers. It is home to a wide variety of vegetation and has a working farm inside the park. The hike to One-tree Hill is rewarding with its picturesque view from the summit.


About Taupo

After spending another day at Kerikeri, I took a flight to Taupo, via Auckland. Here I stayed at the Huka Lodge. The mighty Huka Falls is a short stroll away from the lodge and is a must visit. Also a must try is the white-water rafting. The next day I went on a Fly Fishing excursion to a remote backcountry stream
