The colours of New Zealand – Auckland

New Zealand is a country just three hours’ flight from my home, yet I had never been there till last week.  It’s a gap in my travelling experience I was ashamed of when meeting New Zealanders in Europe!  Well, now I can say I know something about NZ, and I can agree with all those who have told me it’s beautiful.  I enjoyed finding particular scenes where one colour was dominant, and happily snapped a multitude of photos.

I went with my husband, who’s been to NZ a few times before.  Without me.  Auckland was our first port of call, where I was struck by an inviting turquoise sea, streets lined with white houses, and a knockout red wrought iron fence.

    • It’s possibly lovelier than Australia because it’s greener, and there are flowers everywhere (garden escapees), and nowhere is far from water. But we’re bigger!

    • Well, I knew they were traditional but I wasn’t sure if they were Maori or European traditional, so I went for the generic term ‘boats’. The black one was particularly beautiful on the blue-green water of the harbour. Thanks for the comment and info.
