One of my favourite days in Auckland was when we visited the zoo! I really don’t know Auckland terribly well, and despite visiting almost 10 times (!) I rarely leave the CBD.. So I was massively excited as we looked out the windows of our Uber ride and spotted Auckland zoo fast approaching! It’s pretty clear that the flamingoes were my favourite (just look at them!!) but the elephant (Burma, the only elephant in New Zealand) was incredible too – & we arrived just in time to hear the zookeepers telling us all about her. It was amazing .

It literally was the perfect day – and just as we left it started to rain – making it feel all the more special. I definitely recommend this place if you happen to pop into Auckland! It is by far the best zoo in New Zealand – and so beautiful too!

Before heading out to dinner (burgers for the win!) we had an enormous attempt at stalking a stunning building that I had been eyeing up from our hotel. Picture ivy covered, picture old brick.. Gosh it was a beauty! And do you know what? We couldn’t find it!! Phones clutched in hand, staring at Google earth, we were sure there was no way we’d miss it.. But somehow it just wasn’t meant to be! So was a relief when we finally made our way onto this equally beautiful palm tree lined street. And it honestly felt like it was meant to be – as I was clad in my finest leopard print – making me feel like some sort of urban Jane-from-Tarzan (never a bad thing, let me tell you!)
