Headed back to Auckland yesterday
early start but no matter, couldnt sleep very well actually due to sleeping bag being more suited to africa maybe not NZ
will buy a liner for it along the way

the journey felt longer yesterday but still made it to Auckland
not a massive fan of auckland itself, just because there really isnt much there, its the capital for work, and many kiwis work here
but if youre not working not much else to do
back at Kel's and em and again i asked if it would be ok to stay one more night and they were so lovely to say yes

its been a touristy day
Kel and Andrew their house mate took me around auckland, we were tryin to lok at cars, not so successful
but then went to the largest music store in NZ, andy and Kel are big on guitar!

then taken to one of the only black sand beaches in the world
it was divine! the iron ore in the sand from the volcanoe, as Auckland is on a volcanoe itself made the beach glisten and the sun beaminng down could reveal the black sands
only NZ and Hawaii have it in the world!!

also a cool night before sleeping at the airport got to go to a couch surfing big crimbo drink up
so gotto meet all the couch hosts of auckland and fellow travellers, awesoem poizza and awesome people
loved theeveing
and airport used to now hanging out at so all good!!
