... Zealand. We caught the bus from the airport - look at us using public transport! Bob and I loved a taxi a bit too much in South America and were determined to be more careful with our money in this continent. At around 8am we arrived at our hostel in Auckland and as we couldn't check in until 2pm...shopping it was! $400 later (oops), we were back at the room and had a quick nap before dinner.

It was nice to be in a park with hundreds of personal trainers and their victims, all being punished in the dark by angry sounding fitness gods! Once the sun was up I headed into the Auckland museum.
