Summer adventures

This week the husband and I have had the pleasure of spending some time with Andrew and Carissa- two talented Americans who have been in New Zealand to shoot a wedding.
We took them to some of favourite spots in Auckland- One Tree Hill, lunch at Circus Circus in Mt Eden, a wander through Ponsonby (where we sat at a cafe a few seats from Rhys Darby of Flight of the Conchords fame), played on a flying fox, relaxed on the bean bags under the Telecom Christmas tree and had a true blue kiwi dinner of fish and chips on the beach- complete with L&P and Watties tomato sauce.

This week has been the first official week of summer in NZ so it was a great way to kick it off. Also wonderful to make some lovely new friends & have a few adventures together! I have a few more pictures to share but you'll have to wait to see them on my Cornetto blog on Thursday :)


  1. Looks like a fantastic time. They seem like a lovely couple, I'm always reading their blog posts.

  2. Nothing beats a good old kiwi dinner of fish and chips on the beach! I need to go see the christmas Tree in Ponsonby.

  3. Meeting blog friends is the best :)

  4. Looks like you all had a great day! :)

  5. Oh this post is so kiwi ha! Love that you got them fish & Chips. From my experience Americans go CRAZY for them!
