Auckland, NZ

Finally made it! After saying our goodbyes at Manchester airport at 1pm on Saturday 26th we arrived in Auckland at 3pm Monday 28th. We spent the whole time eating three course aeroplane meals, watching countless films, the occasional beverage and changing planes in all sorts of places.

It turns out that although I had an interview on the Tuesday I moved out of the YHA and into Wellywood. It just wasn’t meant to be and us working in …

We woke up early and packed up to get ready to leave Napier. The morning was grey and fairly cold. It had been raining quite hard, but as we bid fair-well to the old chap on the desk, the rain seemed to stop.
We made our way along the parade to the pick up point and waited. We waited and waited and waited. The bus was due in at 0900. We had …

So that was the South island, done and dusted. Today we had to get the ferry across to Wellington on the North island. The ferry was 3 1/2 hours which surprised us, the islands look much closer on the map. So we were up nice and early, as is the norm at the moment, and waiting at the ferry terminal. We were supposed to have a wait of about an hour …

Meet everyone again!

15th - 16th April I flew from Dunedin to Wellington basically because I didn't have enough time to get the Stray bus up to Auckland for my flight on the 19th to Sydney.

    Crazy party place, full of teenagers running riot, playing drinking games involving wearing green wigs. Receptionist guy is really nice and helpful. Bascially, if you are a couple or just hate being woken up by drunken children, take a private room, very basic but nice beds.
