I started my day out by heading to the New Zealand Botanical Gardens. It was extremely cold, but the botanical gardens are still very pretty in winter.
Auckland Botanical Gardens
The Auckland Botanic Gardens are a great place to visit. It is completely free to walk around the gardens and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Check out the details here.
It’s Free to get in! There are wonderful winding paths taking you through the gardens. With all of the different types of plants, there is always something interesting to see.
This is a must-see when you are traveling around New Zealand.
It rains a lot in Auckland. If you are visiting the botanical gardens make sure you take an umbrella. It’s always better to be on the safe/prepared side.
I made it there just in time because as you can see in these pictures the rain was headed my way!
Moving to Another Country
I moved from the USA to New Zealand to become a live-in nanny. This gives me a lot of time to learn about living in a different country and seeing all the sights.
I also have a lot of time by myself since I don’t know anyone. It’s quite fun being all by yourself sometimes. When I followed all the signs to the rose garden, I thought to myself, “oh I can’t wait to see all the roses.” Then when I arrived at the roses I saw nothing but sticks on the ground.
I should have known because it’s winter!
That is the one thing that is hard during my free time. I am normally all by myself, either doing things like this or sitting in my room reading. It does get lonely.
