" Aukland is the biggest city in New Zealand.Its known as the ""City of Sails"". Its beautiful city having a beautiful beach."


I have been planning to go to the New Zealand from last three months but every time I am about to go I had to change my plan at last moment. Fortunately last month everything work in my favor and at 12’O clock I board a plane from Chhatrapati Shivaji airport Mumbai. The moment I board a plane filled my heart with joy and I started waiting desirously to land at Auckland airport. I forgot to introduce myself I am Manish lives in Mumbai and working as a technical architect in a construction company. The reason behind my extreme happiness as I will met my elder brother who lives in Auckland. I had not seen him from last two years. When I reached at the parking I saw a person with my name on the plate I went to him and confirmed whether he is looking for Manish from Mumbai and he mumbled haha . I hugged him instantly really he changed from fatty to a slim muscled guy. While returning from the airport to his house when he told me that he will be accompanying me from tomorrow for five days , I tahnked him a lot. Since the flight was very long so after having some lite stuff I went asleep and woke at 6’O clock in the evening when someone rings the bell.

All Saint Church
Next morning we went to experience the adventure of bungy jumping from the Auckland Harbour Bridge. In the beginning I was feeling very nervous but at the I gathered the courage to jump. It was really the most amazing thing I have done in my life. When my brother told me that he also did it today for the first time I still remember I laughed at him loudly. As he had been there from last two years and had not done this amazing adventure.We spent almost whole day watching other jumpers and encouraging and motivating them. We came back from there at around 5’O clock and then we went to the café to have some snacks. After having snacks there we came back to his residence and had a good special dinner prepared by an Indian Chef.

Art Gallery
Next day we went to the Auckland Domain the city's oldest park and it was spacious and diverse. This park has the charm of formal gardens. There are a lot of old trees. We spent a lot of time there. When we came back from the garden we had planned that tomorrow we will go to the famous Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens.

Auckland Botanical Garden After having our breakfast my brother have also called one of his local friend to company us in the garden and we have planned that we will picnic there. So he also carried some dishes that he had cooked early morning. Since the Art gallery was under a major restoration and expansion work so did not spend much time there and from there went to the Botanical garden where we meet Daniel, my brother ‘s friend. We stroll around the garden and discovered plants from all around the world before meeting Daniel. We left from the garden at 6’O clock and Daniel also came with us as it was local holiday there.

 

Auckland War MeAuckland War Memorial Museum
On the last day we went to the Church in the morning and then from there we went to the War memorial museum. Auckland War Memorial Museum is a terrific combination of old and modern style. I was feeling sad as I have to say good bye to my brother since I was left with one spare day in my kitty and that too I have to compromise in travelling as the flight would take around 15 hours to reach Mumbai. Really the trip to Auckland was one of the most adventurous tour I have ever had in my life.
