    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 ...

    ... there were a few people out and about and braving the climb for the view at the top. There is a very step track cut into one section of the hill so you can bypass some of the more gentle path. At the bottom it looked like a great idea. Not too far.

However he ran into conflict with the local Maori, killing some before sailing ...

    ... of Whakarewarewa was interesting and the haka taught to and done by some tourists was especially funny.
    I even made it to Hobbiton on this trip and I enjoyed a drink in the Green Dragon before we headed back after an afternoon strolling past hobbit houses.

    ... that it wasn't him they just left it there! The Italian that sold them the statue was Dellio Trotteria! Gisborne does not have a lot to do. It has wine trails but we are doing that at Napier tomorrow or Friday. We went for a circular walk around the harbour where there is a statue of Little Nick, the lookout on the Endeavour, and the first to spot the bay. After the harbour, we headed into the town centre. ...
