When I saw that Allen was looking for a new place to inhabit I did the typical thing and said, “Hey, why not consider Auckland?”
Of course Allen decided to then ask a few of us to write up a bit of a post on our cities and why they’d be great to live in. Now this is easier said that done & I have to admit, not being a true Aucklander I’m hard pushed to start my article as “Why I love Auckland” – I won’t sugar coat it. I live here because I got a job here – but I stay here because …. well now, lets take a look at that shall we?
Auckland, the City of Sails, is the northern most city in New Zealand. It’s a city of over 1.4 million people, and is currently in the process of transitioning from 7 regional cities into one super city. Built around the volcanic isthmus, Auckland is a rather spread out city, with the narrowest section of the city being something like 5 kilometers from east to west. You can drive to the coast (either east or west) in about 10 mins from anywhere in the city.
