Kari’s journey continues as she explores New Zealand’s beautiful landscape.
One of the many great things about New Zealand is its strong eco-friendly vibe. The city of Auckland encourages residents to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible. So when it came time to decide what to do with the abandoned industrial port that once served as a petro-chemical storage area known as the “Tank Farm,” it was no question but to preserve it’s original maritime beauty.
In 2005, Ports of Auckland developed a 25 year long project to turn Wynyard Quarters into a thriving waterfront community, complete with residential and commercial spaces. In 2011, the first stage opened.
If you had the opportunity to live in New Zealand for three months and your only job was to have fun and explore, you would take it, right? That’s exactly what my dear friend and interior designer, Kari, did. When her husband got the rare opportunity to work in New Zealand for three months, they just couldn’t say no. Since Kari won’t be able to get a work visa, she’s become Auckland’s newest Real Housewife. But she won’t be spending too much time at home. Each week, she’s going to share with us her adventures exploring this beautiful region. Get ready for an incredible journey and welcome to Auckland!
