Sky Tower

Sky Tower is an icon of Auckland's sky line. I recently did the Sky Jump. It's basically base jumpimg by wire 192m off the tower. I have done Skydiving and the Kawarau Bungy Jumping last year so this Skyjump was just okay but still fun. I must admit I still freaked out at the start but totally enjoyed every seconds of it after I jumped. 

They didn't have a photographer. They strapped a gopro and that takes just the video where you can just take a screenshot but mine wasn't thag good because of the sleeves of the suit. I honestly don't think suit was necessary. 

Now, what are the odds that my Queenstown kawarau bungy jumping master Jaime is going to be my sky tower master as well here in Auckland. That was 7 months ago in the South Island and I wasn't expecting to see him again ever LOL. 

Oh yeah, make sure you tie your hair up before you jump!!! 

I checked out the observation deck which was pretty cool. 

I capped off the night with a nice three-course dinner at Orbit Restaurant. 

I also spent some time at the casino. I won some money then I lost all. LOL! I had fun though. 😂

These activities are definitely a must do when in Auckland. 😉

Northland, New Zealand

Retreat 2 90 Mile in Ahipara is a nice, relaxing place to stay when visiting Cape Reinga. 

The sunset was just perfect! 

Ahipara town is about 2 hours drive to the northern end of New Zealand’s North Island. 

Cape Reinga is believed to be the place of leaping for Maori spirits to begin their final journey. 

Breath of fresh air! 😌

With the lighthouse and the sacred tree from afar. 

This is the second northern tip of a country I’ve been. The first was in Cabo de la Vela in Colombia which was equally beautiful. One thing they have in common? Peace! Such a very peaceful place! Definitely a must visit. 😊

Easter Holiday in Canterbury Region

I arrived in New Zealand in June 2015. I have been wanting to visit the famous Mt.Cook National Park during my travels in the country but I didn’t get a chance until now, the Easter Holiday. πŸ™‚ 

I went straight to Fairlie from Christchurch as that’s halfway to Mt.Cook National Park and the accommodation is cheaper. I first visited the famous Lake Tekapo. 

Then the historical Church of the Good Shepherd. 

Saving the best for last, I finally got to explore Mt. Cook National Park. 

I ended this trip relaxing in a private thermal pool in Hanmer Springs.
