Small World

Last Friday I was walking along Queen's Steet in Auckland with Sanchio and my parents and who do I bump into - Matthias - a study colleagues from Agilent back in Germany. What a small world. We exchanged phone numbers and decided to meet up when he is back from his trip to the Bay of Islands. Yesterday we met up and went on a little road trip. After a shot trip to (N)One tree hill to get a good aerial view of Auckland...

After some hours on the beach watching the surf and enjoying the sun we went to the Kitekite Waterfall just around the corner. What an amazing place. I walked up a little track to get to the top of the falls and the steep climbing was rewarded with stunning views and a refreshing bath in a private pool on top of the falls.

On the way back we paid a short visit to Karekare Beach.

Back in Auckland we had dinner in Mission Bay - what a great day!
