    Overnight flight from Hong Kong on Air NZ. Looks promising as more legroom than Virgin, but unfortunately only Dan manages to get any proper sleep. The rest of us average 3 movies each and are boggle eyed when we land.

    Bright and sunny in Auckland, but 20 degrees lower than Hong Kong. It feels colder than it is.

    When the Avis man sees our luggage he recommends we ...

    ... on our way. After a while on the Soutwest motorway we took the smaller roads to the Coromandel Peninsula. The coastal route to Coromandel town was hairy at times but stunning.

    ... book. Although I'm sure had we fixed it, put through WOF and sold it in Sep we would have got a great deal more for it, but we felt like we'd been ambushed when we went online to advertise. In 1 day 10 camper vans we're put up in the Auckland area, and everyday it was the same, more and more camper vans, everybody selling.

    ... beaches of Oneroa and Ontangi I was able to swim without my stinger suit for the first time in an age! It felt fantastic.I also manged to get in a spot of snorkelling at Goat Island north of Auckland. I needed the stinger suit then as it was so chilly but it was the first time I've ever seen kelp and it was mesmerising, golden mermaid hair stuff.

    Staying with my good friend Alison (who I met on my South American adventures), we went to paint the town red ...
