Auckland, NZ

It's been a few months now since I've been home from the most wonderful vacation I've ever taken. New Zealand, Australia, and Samoa, alone are undescribable...combined they are more than I could ever ask for. Not to get too cheesy but I HAVE to thank my family...not only for paying for the trip but for all the support they have given me throughout my whole life. I owe you everything.
Onto the fun stuff....


Did you know that in NZ there are more sheep than people? We took a little time out of our night to pose with some sheep inspired items...silly girls.



This is Me & Ailia on a ferry on our way to Waiheke island....it was so windy! The day hot...as soon as we got on the ferry to go back to Auckland...it started raining...perfect timing!



I feel like I was born to be on a beach...no seriously...I am happiest when on the beach. This is a little place called "Tawharanui" it's a place only the "locals" know about. It took us about 2 hours to get there....but the drive was half the experience! Everywhere you looked there was lush green wonderfulness all around you...the view was incredible...the outlook was breathtaking.



When we left Auckland it was storming like crazy...once we got to Tawharanui.....clear blue sun filled skies!



I mustered up the courage to go cave diving...that's right...cave diving. It was a little scary...at one point I felt like "Penny" from Disney's "The Rescuers" when Madusa makes her go down into the cave to get the "diamond"...pretty intense.



On Sundays rather than stay in the house we would take a trip to Mission Bay and just chill on the beach....it was perfect weather...and it had a perfect view



Me, Ailia, & Jamie...I love this picture b/c the sun is totally blinding us but we HAVE to take the picture anyway ha ha ha!



While I was in NZ my friends took me to the "Museum of Auckland" where I found...my own personal Kiwi bird....which still exist today.



One day Ailia and I decided to go on a jungle hike...don't you love the jungle???


In NZ they have what they call a "Hens Night" we know it better as a "Bachelorette Party." They go all out at these hens nights...we all had to dress up...the theme was "Girls in Uniforms" I was in the Navy and the bride-to-be was a Pilot. So fun.


While I was on the ferry I snapped this shot of the Auckland Skyline....what a looker eh?
