Auckland aka “City of Sails”…

aka-bis Tāmaki (in Maori) is located on an isthmus, up the North Island, and is NZ’s main transit center where a large part of the population lives; it’s a very pleasant city, surrounded by extinct volcanoes and hiking trails; well, most of its inhabitants are about 1/2 hour away from wonderful beaches and a dozen of charming islets – lucky them!!! 🙂

N.B. for those who have missed geography or history classes… 😉 even though Auckland is NZ’s most populated city and the world’s number one place where people of Polynesian descent live, the country’s capital is Wellington – a very pleasant and interesting city, too! 🙂
