Auckland - ringed by volcanoes
Fortunately the volcanos in and around the city appear dormant. The ancient craters are now green and lush and great places for kids to play.
Today the most impressive structure is the Auckland tower (the highest structure in the Southern Hemisphere).
Despite my fear of heights – and the glass floor in the lift – I survived a trip to the top.
The brave folk who do a controlled bungy jump from the top must be mad!
