In the Foot of the Cathedral

31st July 2016

A view of York Minster from the city walls.

The main event in York is York Minster. It’s the biggest thing around, the most important, and the centre of activity. But in it’s shadow; a very peaceful English garden wine bar, looking out in the opposite direction to the City Walls from which I was walking on.

Rangitoto Summit

3rd July 2016

The view to Auckland City from the summit of Rangitoto Island.

It’s so close at only 25mins from Auckland City by ferry, but Rangitoto is like a different world. The walk to the summit is gentle and good for the whole family. The ferry timetable is pretty limited, so, be conservative with how much time you allow yourself on the island. This is all you need to remember: be back at the wharf on time for the return journey or spend the night.
