Landed in Auckland around 10.30 pm and Phil was waiting for me at the airport, took me a while to spot him at the airport but then it felt like it'd been 5 minutes since I saw him last. They had kicked Maia out of her bedroom so I felt like I had a luxury apartment compared to the dorm rooms i had been staying in! My first day Tracey&Phil took me sight seeing and then the following days I was exploring on ...
... probably 23/24 from Melbourne. Nice to have some more people around doing the same thing. Chilled in room for a bit and some how fell asleep for four hours, opps.

... the much cheaper local bus and visited the Auckland museum which had a rather eerie exhibition about Scott and his Antarctic exhibition and included his first class ticket to Christchurch which he obviously didn’t get to use. The local bus did a circuit around some of the suburbs of Auckland and Peter decided that this would be a better and cheaper way to see the city, so stay on we did, and sat a full hour on the bus, stopping every few minutes at bus stops.
