Auckland - für die meisten ist die größte Stadt Neuseelands nur der Ankunftsort und sie wollen möglichst schnell weg. Wir haben uns vor allem am Ende unserer Reise in der Stadt sehr wohl gefühlt und wollen deshalb unsere Top 3 Attraktionen mit euch teilen:
1. Mt. Eden: der Vulkankrater ist ein super Aussichtspunkt um auf die Skyline und das gesamte Hafenbecken schauen zu können.
2. Auckland Domain: an Auckland haben uns vor allem immer die vielen Parks gefallen, unter anderem der Domain Park, bei dem man sich fühlt, als wäre man im tiefsten Dschungel.
3. Sky Tower: für die, die sich Auckland von oben anschauen oder sogar einen Bungee Jump machen wollen, ist der Sky Tower eine super Anlaufstelle!
I’m sorry that I can’t show you any pictures of the Poás crater. After seeing all the google images of the rugged stone and fumes, my friends @joaquin.picado and Thomas decided to take a day trip to the famous volcano. Sadly, all we got was a foggy view (which you can see in the last pic). Either way, we were still able to enjoy the beautiful landscapes around the volcano, from the extensive coffee plantations to the cloud-forest like vegetation at the top. It was fun (and somewhat strange) to wear hard hats and walk in groups to the crater, which are new measures taken after the most recent eruptions. Stay tuned for more Poás pics !
Our calling isn't always just one thing. It can be many but seeing God move in power though your life is something that is so beautiful. When you find the thing that fills you with satisfaction and fulfillment, God may work in so many ways. It doesn't mean it is always easy, living Kingdom isn't easy. But there is so much life that comes from it. The work it takes and the struggle are worth it when God moves. Seek out your calling, ask God where to be and what to do. He wants to display His glory through you, if you would only just ask!

a lil thought from a recent devotional:
We, fiercehearted women, are all living a story today. A story crafted and told by the Author of heaven. The star-scatterer. The mountain-mover. The water-walker. It is a story of being brave and strong and loved. A story of, most of all, love.
I just love the imagery entangled in this truth and I picture many beautiful sights. It just proclaims so much truth and how awesome God is.
Happy Monday everyone! :) I wanted to share a little bit of how my desk is coming along.
For the last 3 months I was living out of 2 suitcases- one of clothes and on of school stuff, and it was ROUGH. But I finally got into my dorm and cleaned it out and I’ve been setting up my study space for this fall.
This is what I’ve got so far with the most ADORABLE graduation present I got (thanks @hmabbate_2 you da best).
I cannot wait to start studying again and be back in some classes, it’s been so weird not having a busy schedule and I just need that lifestyle back 😅
QUESTION: what are some must haves on your desk that you would recommend?? 🌼
Agora se você sabe do teu valor, então vá atrás do que você merece, mas tem que estar preparado para apanhar. E nada de apontar dedos, dizer que você não consegue por causa dele ou dela, ou de quem quer que seja. Só covardes fazem isso e você não é covarde, você é melhor que isso.
this was my last lil trip before lockdown happened and i’m glad i managed to squeeze at least 1 weekend away in this year before it all kicked off!
it was exactly what i needed - good food, exploring a new city, plenty of alcohol and a lewis capaldi concert to top it all off💫
where’s your fave city break?🗺
