Today we decided to go to Waiheke Island - about 20mins away from Auckland by ferry. We caught the ferry from Half Moon Bay and landed at Kennedy Point.

I was originally looking forward to the plane but this journey was horrendous, luckily noone was next to me so I could spread out but I couldn't get comfy and a guy infront of me kept snoring, there was a fitty sat opposite ...
