Living in suburbia in ‘the big city’, I find it calmly refreshing out in the more rural districts. Long fields of grass, neighbours close enough if needed, but far enough away not to be looking in your window. I think it also the flat open landscape that you can stare into the distance of. Auckland in general is fairly hilly, so you need to be at a high point to see so far at ground level.
