Chasing Dreams Destination Pure New Zealand Travel Rambles

Of Hearts, Rainbow and Auckland

Through sleep-infused bleary eyes, I looked out of the plane window and thought I saw tiny hearts! With disbelief, I blinked several times to clear my vision. What lies beyond were actually small puffy clouds floating prettily amid the blue, blue sky. I was mesmerized.

My first impression of countries at the Southern Hemisphere consists of rich blue skies and well-defined clouds. Why is the sky here so beautiful? I even saw a streak of rainbow enroute Brisbane to Auckland!

Rainbow

Upon arrival to Auckland, I met up with my ever-lovely BFF and BFFH who brought me around and introduced two prominent attractions – One Tree Hill and Mount Eden (Auckland’s highest volcano!). Both offer a panorama view of this metropolitan city that houses one third of New Zealand’s entire population of 4 million! The air was fresh and crisp, the scenery magnificent.

Despite the cold, I can’t help thinking of this as a wonderland.
