Arrived Nelson airport, only two tickets showing on computer. Third was in there only wouldn't show up. Left Nelson on time and got to Auckland 9pm - 10 minutes early. Waited 20 Minutes for Oakwood Manor Shuttle to pick us up. It was windy but not as cold as Nelson. After checking in finally got to bed around 10.30pm.
... the world and he is way better at football than Rooney the surin guy. Then the craziest thing ever seen happened while Philip ******* SinkbŠk entered the field during his 900th appearance for the greatest club ever made; the only one and only Manchester United.
If you dont quite understand that, its fine, because i dont either, but Rooneys half way line goal was pretty awesome!
We headed to the Base hostel bar next where we got more drinks, there was this strange ...

In spite of not having watched any of the films, I went along as I didn't want to be left out of any of the fun! I have to confess that most of it went over my head, but I made sure I took photos of each of the 44 Hobbit holes just in case they become important when I watch the films! It was good, but I would have got so much more from it if I had watched the films ...
... and small groups made the hostel feel a bit like a waiting room, a hint of isolation or solitude filled the air. While we planned our Auckland adventure truckers Alex and Gill had made contact with us and were going to come and meet up with us at some point before we head off to some beaches on the Coromandel Peninsula. Let's get on with things and go into the city. There was already more people plodding around than we have seen across the whole of New Zealand so ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsOakwood Manor Auckland Airport Motor Lodge Mangere
They were fantastic. We called the hotel at midnight when we arrived, a courtesy bus came and picked us up and took us back to Oakwood. The room was clean and comfortable with tea and coffee facilities. We had a free continental breakfast there on Boxing Day morning before the courtesy bus took us back to the airport to start our journey.
