My 5 Favourite Activities: Auckland - City video:
1. My first destination would be visiting the Rainforest of the Waitakere Ranges.
Reason: Having to experience that would be astonishing. exploring the rainforest and seeing all kinds of different species of animals. And seeing animals I wouldn’t be able to see back in my home area would just be brilliant.
2. My second destination would most likely be the Piha Beach.
Reason: I’ve only been to Piha Beach once and it was significant. Just walking, with the sun in my face and feeling the sand on your feet and the fresh breeze flowing past, Who would say no to that?.
3. My third destination would have to be The Auckland War Memorial Museum.
Reason: Visiting a Museum is something I have never done but wanted to do. Visiting Auckland War Memorial Museum is like a dream come true, one to have fun and two to learn more about the place which I call home. (New Zealand) - (Aotearoa)
4. My fourth destination would happen to be Base Jumping off the New Zealand Sky Tower
Reason: Base jumping off the New Zealand Sky Tower isn’t an opportunity everyone may get but me telling my friend I did it would be unbelievable. Ever since I was young I have been afraid of heights, plummeting down the rainbow’s End Fear Fall is a height I can handle but looking down from the sky tower and even worst Base Jump off is something I’ll have to overcome.
5. My last destination would be to stop by The Auckland Park Domain.

Reason: The Auckland Park Domain is the place to go, be free and escape all stress. Or Though I have only been their once that’s an experience I’ll love to have again.

    Motu, Thank you for completing Day 1 activity 2. I really enjoyed reading about your 5 favorite activities to visit in Auckland. Your reasons for seeing these places are so overwhelming. I have visited the Auckland War Memorial Museum. I must admit, there are so many wonderful sculptures, crafts and monuments for you to see. It's so fascinating. I really hope you get to visit this place one day. It is definitely a life time experience.

  3. Great start Motu, Piha Beach is where we went last year for our camp. I look forward to your journey around New Zealand. How exciting.

  4. Hi Motu, You are a brave person!! Even thinking of Base Jumping off the sky tower, especially when you don't love heights, is very courageous of you!

    I enjoy your explanations of why you would choose the other places that you'd like to visit - you've thought things through. Well done! I hope you'll have opportunities in the next few months or year to see all of the places you've identified!

    I live in Canada but am coming to visit your beautiful city soon so now I have a list of interesting destinations to visit. Thank you!
