Day 27 – Auckland / Botany Town Centre
After three and a half weeks of outdoor adventures, I finally got the chance to visit a New Zealand mall today. I chose the recommended Botany Town Centre located in the suburbs of Auckland. It was fun browsing through the racks and comparing NZ prices to US prices (just an FYI, New Zealand is definitely much more expensive). We also got the chance to visit the tail end of Victoria Park Market, where I bought my husband a beautiful pounamu Maori pendant (which symbolizes power, authority, good luck, and fertility). On a different note, we returned our rental car today so we’re officially foot soldiers from this point forward. It’s amazing what beautiful things you stumble upon while walking through the nooks and crannies of a big city.
