Dunedin Part 1|Exploring New Zealand 2016

DSC_0277.JPGHello loves! I am back with another travel post for you! It is quite a long post but I have amazing photos to help you add New Zealand to your travel bucket list.I have lived in Dunedin, New Zealand for 5 years and I guess you might want to ask me , “What is there to see in Dunedin?” Well I will be sharing with you places I have visited in Dunedin.

The Octagon

I was actually living about 2 minutes from the iconic Octagon. The place is called the octagon because the streets are built in a way that they resemble the shape of an octagon( 8 sided shape).The Octagon has some of the amazing historic buildings of Dunedin City, which are mostly of Scottish heritage.
