Sparkling Auckland

Here we are again at last! As you can imagine the Rugby World Cup is taking up a lot of my free time at the moment, but I have some time today before our next guests arrive for the weekend.

We have had some lovely guests over the past few weeks all from different areas of the world. We have loved having them stay and they have enjoyed their time with us we are glad to say.

A little moan now! Some of the guests have mentioned that they have no idea of what to do whilst on holiday in Auckland. The tourist guides are all very keen to get you out of Auckland so don't promote Auckland as a destination, when in fact just about everything you can do in other parts of New Zealand  you can do here - yes even  snowboarding!www.snowplanet.co.nz. So over the next few blogs I am going to take you on a journey through Auckland and outlying regions to show you the fun you can have just a short distance from Haven Homestay.

Back to today however. We are nearing the end of the Rugby World Cup now and the excitement is building towards the first semi final on this weekend - fingers crossed for the mighty All Blacks. Auckland has done a super job of hosting this tournament and the visitors from around the world seem to be having a wonderful time. It will be kind of sad when its all finished!

So, I must get back to the baking now, perhaps some lovely banana bread for the next guests.............
