Clicking at the Britomart: Auckland, New Zealand

This was the 22nd post (Day 22) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.


23rd July 2014 – Auckland, New Zealand

The hangovers came again. Like unwanted visitors.
As you sow, so shall you reap. They seemed to say.
The promised gardens awaited me at Eden.
But the apple stayed close to the waters today.

Docking in, and docking out. At the Britomart Ferry terminal in Auckland.

Was happy to see someone last night. His name was Jim Beam, so we made it a fun night at home. The drinking lasted till 3 AM.

And the next day, the grogginess and hangover lasted till noon.


At noon, I met a school-friend, who I last met 15 years ago, at the Auckland hospital. He is fine, thank you. I met him at the hospital only because he was working there. He drove me to Mt. Eden, where I checked out the huge crater. It’s indeed fabulous to watch a giant crater like Mt. Eden, but none of the pics came out great and are worth sharing.

So, I headed to the Britomart ferry terminal and hung around there for a while. Just clicking the ferries for a bit.

I guess I came ferry close to getting the ‘pic of the day’.
