The Baker’s Cottage (Kingsland, Auckland, New Zealand)

The day we visited this institution was a busy day for us, we were literally out and about the whole day from Sunrise to Sunset for a morning workout on the East side of Auckland and finishing up with a small gathering out West with friends. In between we were...

The GYOZA BAR (Ponsonby, Auckland, New Zealand)

If you are looking for a Japanese bar with an Izakaya feel then look no further and head over to the Gyoza Bar at Ponsonby. I had visited several Izakaya’s before and most of them happened during our family trip in Japan. Since then, I was trying to find something...

Murray Piha (Piha, Auckland, New Zealand)

Quite a late post since we were here mid-January after a nice hike and a short dip at Kitekite Falls. It was a good uphill tramp with the falls at the end, perfect thing to do during summer where you dip in its cold fresh water from the falls after...
