Visit the City of Volcanoes: Auckland, New Zealand

Did you know that Auckland, New Zealand and its surrounding country side are formed by lava flow?

The Maori locals call it “The City of Lovers”. Still others call it “The City of Sails” for its sprawling harbors.

Imagine experiencing all four seasons in an entire day!

The one thing I found most interesting/frightening to learn about Auckland is that it has over 56 volcanoes! The video claims over 40, but draw your attention to Wikipedia for the lowdown on this place and its volcanic field: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auckland_volcanic_field

I love New Zealand, but geesh — the thought of the complete decimation of the city is a little overwhelming, no?
