“Bucket List” Tourism vs Leisurely Vacation
Our previous visit to New Zealand, 10 months ago, was a combination of “Bucket List Tourism” and a “Leisurely Vacation”.
After just a day in Auckland – we rushed off to South Island – by flight to Christchurch – and then – by road to see beautiful sights like Canterbury Plains, Lakes Tekapo and Pukaki, Queenstown, Te Anau, Fiordland, Milford Sound, Mount Cook Aoraki etc
It was a memorable “sight-seeing” trip – but – we were always on the move – and – almost 10 days passed in a jiffy.
This give us just around 10 days to “soak in” the ambience of Auckland.
So – our last trip was a combination of “Bucket List Tourism” and a “Leisurely Vacation”.
This time – it purely a “Leisurely Vacation” – to “soak in” the beautiful city of Auckland – walk around – enjoy the delicious cuisine – and – relax.
Maybe – once we a totally relaxed – we may make a trip to the geothermal region of Rotorua – and also see the Waimoto Glowworm Caves on the way.
Now – I am off on a walk to Mount Eden – and – maybe – I will have a Bannoffee Pie on the way at Fraser’s.
