Well, finally arrived in Auckland yesterday, at about 2pm local time. The 24 hr plane journey was surprisingly nice! Yay Emirates! Managed to get to the hostel without any trouble (I was convinced I would get lost on the way), checked into my room and crashed. I sat down to write my journal at 4pm, and woke up at 11pm! I must have just fallen asleep. So then I carried on sleeping till 8 am. I don't feel as tired as I expected, maybe it'll kick in tomorrow. 

Spent a few hours on the internet in the morning, trying to fix my card reader (which thankfully seems to be working now, so you can see some photos!) then went to the local supermarket to get food for the next few days. 

First impressions of NZ/Auckland - hot! It's Autumn here, but it's way hotter than an English summer ever is! A couple of guys I spoke to in a shop said I had the best of the weather, and apparently the summer had been crap!  So lucky me I guess!

I've just spent the afternoon relaxing, as I don't feel great, just pretty run down I guess.

I'm spending the day volunteering with the Devonport Guardians at North Head tomorrow. Should be pretty tiring, but good fun. However, I'm not looking forward to wearing trousers and long sleeves if it's as hot as today was!
