Auckland – Titirangi

Half a day of good weather in Auckland? Leave Auckland and go to hel…. I mean Titirangi!

Mate pul dne volna v Aucklandu a hezky pocasi k tomu? Tak se seberte a jedte do řit… Teda do Titirangi!





We have heard that Titirangi is artsy little town and the reality was very far from this rumour. It is more like a slightly artsy village. Our welcome party is a bunch of chooks and they all look beautiful, groomed and taken care of. Hipster chooks anyone? 🙂

We took our house dog with us which turned out to be really good idea and nice refreshment for our small group (it’s usually us and some teddy bear). Doggie loved it and didn’t even chase any chook.

ss

Yep, Titirangi is definitely the official chicken village 🙂 But you know what? We love it! There is nothing better then escaping overcrowded Auckland.

ss

There is even some cool historical stuff to see, not just art and some coffee shops. Even if you stop by just for few hours it should amuse for a bit.

NZ beaches have been nothing but a big disappointment so far as unfortunately we are spoiled from Australia. NZ beaches look beautiful at photos but in reality they are not that appealing for a swim and that’s what matters to us. What’s the point of having a beach if you don’t like having fun in the water? It’s like having a really expensive 4wd car and using it only for driving in your suburb – utterly useless.

ss

Yep, that’s what NZ beach looks like. It’s low tide and the show is just not happening. Too bad 🙁

Fortunately we didn’t mind the Titirangi beach because the jungle walk was awesome, Titirangi itself was fun and we finished our day with homemade dinner consisting of green lipped mussels (only in NZ!) which turned out delicious and most importantly super easy to make.

Make the most of what you have 🙂

So yeah, Titirangi is a nice quick stop, you can go for a coffee (heaps of nice options) and also visit the artsy museum which will definitely satisfy your fringe cravings 🙂

Do Titirangi sme jednou docela uspesne zabloudili a na tech 30 vterin co sme tam byli se nam to docela libilo a celkem prijemne to absorbovalo vsechny nadavky co padly na Novo Zelandskou organizaci cest a znaceni. Tak sme se rozhodli se vratit a tentokrat bez sprostych slovicek.

ss

Slyseli sme o Titirangi ze je to radoby umelecke mestecko. No.. Skoro! Je to umelecka vesnice. Ihned po vystupu z auta slysime kohouty (a nebo hladove hipstery?) takze to asi nebude tak zhavy s tim umenim.
Kohouti tu ale fakt sou a ne malo. Hosani sou nastrojeny jak na vylet do Brna tak fotime a berem roha nez se nasemu hafanovi zacnou libit.

ss

Jo, pucili sme si na vylet domaci psa. A docela se ji to libilo jak se zdalo. Nekolik sms a zmeskanych hovoru od pani domaci uz radeji moc nebudem rozvadet (drobna chybka v komunikaci, ehm). Hafan byl ale nadsenej. Vic ho teda zajimalo neustaly pochcavani sloupu a patniku misto toho aby si s nama hral.

ss

Jo, dalsi slepice. Kdepak umelecky mestecko. Vidlakof co ma uprostred vesnice muzeum se soucasnym umenim. Jenze nam vesnice nevadi, to je hlavni pointa! My sme radi ze sme vypadli ze zaprdenyho velkomesta! At zijou kohouti!

ss

Po druhem pokusu nachazime i pamatnik (byl presunut!) a tak se musime vyfotit radne. Uctime pamatku padlych a vyrazime na plaz.

Jenze to je jako rict, ze vyrazime na krasny vylet do Brna. Cesta na plaz vede krasnou dzungli, docela se to porad toci a je to pekne rozdrcany (temer jako dalnice D1 ze joo).

ss

Problem nastava na samotne plazi. To neni plaz, ale odliv. Nic vic, nic min. Uz sme to zminovali? Plaze na Zelandu jsou stejne kvalitni jako vyse zminovane Brno. Plaze jsou mozna pritomny, ale ze by se clovek chtel (a mohl) jit koupat? Ani ve snu. Nez dojdete do vody, tak zapadnete v bahnu, namotate na sebe vetve a morskou travu a poradne se vymachate v bordelu. Ne, tohle neni Australie s opravdovyma plazema 🙁

ss

Plaz neplaz, vylet super bombastic a vyrazime dom. Tam nas ceka docela slusny jidelni experiment – cerstve musle! Tomino nastudoval recepty a jde se na vec – varime je v indicke omacce a vysledek je neskutecny! Lepsi nez v restauraci, delaj se nam boule az za usima a zdlabem to cely ani nemrknem. K tomu par avokadicek a Rada ma i bezlepkovy toust a je to tam!

Jestli nekde uvidite zive musle tak si kupte (cca 0.5kg na osobu) a hodte do hrnce na 6 minut, az se otevrou tak mate uvareno a bagrujte! Je to taaaakhle jednoduchy!

Cau priste bando!
