Climbing at Froggatt

I had my second outdoor climbing trip last Friday, and it was amazing!
Froggatt has great rock, nice views and all kinds of different climbs from super easy to super hard :D
It was worth going there only to see this beautiful place. The weather wasn't perfect and in the end we had to run from the rain, but before that it was a lot of fun!

Who can see the photographer? :D

Lights in Auckland

Diwali - The Indian Festival of Lights

Last weekend Auckland celebrated the Indian Festival of the returning light, with a lot of music, performances, vegetarian food, henna tattoos and colorful clothing around the city square. Diwali (coming from deepavali, 'row of lights')  is the festival of light's triumph over darkness. It's one of the most important festivals of the year in India. The atmosphere was great and so was the food :D And, finally, I found one of the comfortable Indian style trousers I love so much - ready for summer now!

Halfmoon Bay

My last day off work I spent exploring the area by bike and rode to Half Moon Bay via Pakuranga. I'm always keeping an eye open for interesting houses, mailboxes, etc - I am building up a nice collection and it's amazing what you find when you really look around.

Spring is showing itself slowly and the days are getting warmer. I'm really looking forward to summer!

Waiheke Island impressions

These are from our trip to Waiheke Island. We only managed to do one bushwalk this day but it was beautiful and we will probably go there again - if only the ferry weren't so expensive :)
