Interning Tables

Written by Amanda White {No significance to the title. Just wanted to pun off an Adele song—it’s always been a dream of mine. ...just kidding.}

FRIENDS. Did you think I had forgotten you?! Well, you thought wrong. For the past THREE weeks (which is pretty unbelievable), we’ve had simultaneous full-time jobs of: 
1. Interning at cool places; 
2. Being students and writing reports about the expedition; 
3. Becoming local Wellingtonians. It’s a hard life. {Just kidding… but it is a busy one!}

I don’t know how to describe in words just how lovely our explorations have been. Some highlights include:
  • Hikes up Mount Victoria to see sunrise and sunset in the same day
  • Many trips to many markets, both day and night  
  • Amazing restaurants, cool cafes and fun bars.
  • Our various internship experiences, which have all had their own unique high points.
  • Feeling like Wellingtonians after MANY trips down Cuba Street 
  • So many more I can’t relate them all!

A highlight for me has been my hunt for the best flat white in Wellington, which is THE question of the century, apparently. I definitely won’t claim that I’ve found it (because that would be a HIGHLY controversial claim and this blog post might get taken down or something), but I CAN publicly say that my personal favorite can be found at Memphis Belle. The vibes there are just so jazzy, and the coffee is creamy and comforting. I never thought I’d describe a flat white as “having personality” but New Zealand has changed me--and this one does. I’ll miss it SO much.

What follows are some of my favorite pictures of various adventures! I hope you enjoy them even a fraction of how much I enjoyed taking them and living them.

I'm obsessed with collecting city views.

Lyssa and I recorded some voiceovers for a podcast as part of our internship at Enspiral. 

Shannon and I are cute by day AND by night

Lyssa and I helped with a conference at Massey this week!
