I have been in Waiheke for nearly 2 weeks now. I can't believe how quickly it is going! Waiheke is a small island about 30 minutes from Auckland by ferry, it has a really laidback feel, and some really interesting landscapes. There are vineyards, jungle-like walks up steep hills, and amazing small coves and beaches. There are gorgeous views wherever you look!
^ I have stopped many times on a bench at the top of a hill to admire this view!
I am so happy to have to opportunity to experience living on a small island for a few weeks! Though part of me is excited for my next adventure, wherever that will be (my list of places to visit in New Zealand is steadily growing as I meet people telling me about all the amazing places they have been!).
