    Despite the man's premonition, we arrived safely in Auckland, and made our way through to collect our bags. It was our first time using smart gate, and there were no queues, so that was great. We waited and waited (getting used to this). The first bag - the yellow one - came off. We had had it shrink wrapped in Jordan, as the zips were broken and we couldn't attach a lock to them - apart from that it was the one in the best condition. Not any more. When it ...

    ... in the area. Their family had owned the bach since the 50s. We chatted about the housing developers who had got greedy in the area and tried to sell bare land for mega dollars.

    ... Must be very big business for NZ! There are luxury apartments overlooking the loading docks and they have great view in one direction but 45 degrees left and it's very noisy! BREAKING NEWS : The statue of Cook apparently bears no resemblance to our great naval entrepreneur and to top it all he is wearing an Italian uniform!!!
