Timnz just arrived in Auckland 3 days ago, from his native Sweden. He has a family member who is working on a farm here, so he thought he would come to visit. So 3 days in, what does he make of Auckland I ask ? There was a bit of silence, and a little umming and ahhing followed by a.. "quite nice." Upon further query, he said it was a little bit slower than what he was used to. I tried to be an upbeat ambassador by suggesting a few places, upon resigning myself to the fact that whilst we might be a 'liveable city' (for some), Auckland's attractions to international city dwellers can take a little time to reveal themselves.
