Place 49 – Day 347: Auckland – A Peaceful Lake & Many Dogs

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis was very busy again today, hitting 11:00 incredibly fast! Curtis had to do some work fairly quickly in the morning, so he focused on that until around 09:30. This was fairly complicated and something Curtis was unsure about, so ut took quite a while.

After this, Curtis had a few things planned but got a phone call from a client and had to fix something for them urgently.

After lunch, Curtis had a Skype meeting with a client to determine what they are looking for regarding development.

Curtis spent the afternoon doing some development and then it was already home time!

The journey home took 45 minutes and there was a lot of traffic due toa a few accidents south of the city.

Both of us;

Once we were both home, we had the same dinner as yesterday and also made our lunch for tomorrow.

After an hour or so watching TV, we got bored and headed out for a late evening walk around 20:15.

During the walk, Kim got to see many a dog and they were all happy to see her!

The Onepoto Domain is right next to our house and there is a great peaceful lake in the centre, which looks even better at night!

We got back home and watched Trevor Noah’s latest standup show and then headed to bed.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!

Place 61 – Day 1: One Tree Point 🇳🇿 – The Long Weekend Away Begins!

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis’ Day was ridiculously busy! He spent most of the day fighting with the Mac still as well as a lot of cases that came in. There isn’t too much to write about other than the fact he was busy!

One of Curtis’ colleagues had their last day today, so at 09:30 there was a ‘morning tea’ for 30 minutes to say goodbye.

Curtis heard on the radio about a crazy police chase with shots fired and a whole road closure, so he had assumed that the journey home was going to take a while, but it did not!

Both of us;

Kim got home and we packed the last few items for our long weekend away and then Danielle and Josh picked us up from home and we set off.

We stopped at mcdonalds for a bite to eat and then carried on before arriving at One Tree Point, where Josh’s mum has a nice house.

We are just staying here for one night before we drive further up north, but the house is beautiful!

We arrived and Kim was having a great time with the dogs that are here. We all sat down and watched a film called Upgraded which started off rubbish but actually got pretty good.

Once the film was done, it was 23:00 so it was bed time!

We are up nice and early tomorrow to continue our drive up north.

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
