Lush Life

We started the day off with watching Melodifestivalen on SVT Play, because it doesn’t matter if you’re at the other side of the world – you do need to see the finale and see who wins. Frans will be representing us at the Eurovisions, congratulations! The girl I rooted for, Mimi Werner, wasn’t in the finale at all, so it really didn’t matter that much, though I must agree I’m a bit weak for Ace Wilder.

After this, we headed towards the central to first have breakfast at the cutest little café ever, and then continuing down to get our buscards, might as well get one, you know? We chased a beach bag without any luck for a while before getting on the bus towards Takapuna Beach.

At first we were a bit terrified that we had gotten off at the wrong stop, but it was solved really quickly when we found a sign towards the beach.

And what a view! The ocean! The beach! It was wonderful. And what was even more wonderful, was to take my first bath in a sea or ocean in 15 years. It was weird, but fuck I laughed most of the time, even when the salt came in my mouth and lungs. We tanned a bit on the beach, bathed again, sunbathed a bit more before we decided it would be good to pack up our stuff and talk a walk along the beach.


It’s a big beach I’ll tell you, and… Well. There was this stone, with a rope, and I assume this is so you can climb the stone, so I figured I’d give it a try. Of course, what I do, is that I slip and rip wounds up on my legs. Both of them. Good on me, right?


We kept walking along the beach and the amazing rocks you could climb, and once we decided to go back, the tide had gone so high that we LITERALLY had to climb the rocks to get back. The stone I tried to climb was almost covered in water. That’s how high it was.



We wrapped the night up at The Burger Bach where we had each a delicious burger before going home, planning tomorrows adventures.
