The daily commute into Auckland takes in some pretty special views of the city as the bus hurtles or stutters down the northern motorway into the city. Mostly I am oblivious to it, immersed in catching up with emails, reading or just staring blankly out the window.
We decided it was time to change that and visit the city as “strangers”, take time to look at what is normally just background to our daily life.
The good part about visiting your own town is that you can pick the weather. By Thursday we could see that the weekend was looking good so we set out early Saturday on our local adventure.
It was great, we actually felt like we were away, we walked as we would when visiting other places and because we did not have the usual purpose behind our local outings, it was fun, even though it was hot and a lot walking was done.
We need to do this more often.
