Mount Eden...

The scenic journey from Auckland airport to the city has made Mount Eden My LAFS- "Love at a first sight". "Back to Nature" kinda place is always awesome & memorable don't you think so..? I always prefer on the outskirts, just like Grasbrunn in Munich, Volendam & Marken, the old fishing villages outside Amsterdam & the beautiful Hull, UK...oooarrrr:)))) the ever precious memories, regardless the trip was just last week, or a  year back or even a decade ago still close to my heart same goes to Mount Eden!

As I said in my Vlog *sorry for the poor audio..1st trial* earlier we planned to go there by train, but it was advisable to take the Metro Link Bus coz its more convenient for us to walk up the hill from the bus stop & nearby shops there. Okay, let the photos speak for themselves...

Britomart Transport Centre - The Main Train Station &"i" *info counter* get the maps, bus & train schedule!

oops extra 'props' @ the advert board hihihi

yup MetroLink..but not this one!

Bus no. 274, Three Kings is the destination, Time: 2:06, in 3mins..hmmm but we waited for 15mins then only the bus arrived.  As for  the timing wise can't beat Singapore public transport punctuality *sorry just giving my fair comments*

errmm..enough coins? $1.80 per person x 2 = $3.60 
hopefully the bus driver can manage to give back change for a $10 note..

The Fern is "everywhere" wow even on the bus seats that signify the New Zealandness....
Nice & Clean!

30 minutes later, we reached the destination....

Mount Eden Village..*our 'village' & their village is totally different yeah*
