I’ve just moved to Mt Eden and it’s got me pondering a few thoughts about Auckland. And no, not the negative kind. Positive ones of how much I love the place.
I remember being 19 and thinking how much I couldn’t wait to leave after university.
London and Melbourne were far better options to live out the so-called ‘‘prime’’ of your 20s.
But now six years on at 25, I honestly don’t think there’s anywhere else I want to be.
Don’t get me wrong, I aspire to live abroad again.
But there’s so much I love about this city you struggle to find anywhere else.
Take a look at Mt Eden itself. How amazing is it that we have a green majestic volcano plonked in the middle of suburbia.
The Auckland landscape is idiosyncratic, something I worry many of its inhabitants don’t ever truly appreciate.
