Wednesday, traveled for 24hours, and ended up in Auckland on Friday lunch time!
We managed to stay awake until 8pm, which was SO hard, but are now feeling slightly refreshed and ready to explore this morning (although I do seem to have picked up an unfortunate cold on the flight).
We arrived in beautiful sunshine yesterday, it was so lovely to feel the sun on my face, and spent the afternoon walking, drinking 'Christmas' frappacinos, and getting to know our location. Auckland is beautiful, and doesn't feel at all big, given that it's New Zealand's largest city. Yesterday everyone was finishing work for Christmas when we arrived and the bars and restaurants along the stunning harbour side were packed with Kiwi's out celebrating. Sam and I didn't quite feel up to joining them yesterday (I could barely work out which buttons to press in the lifts, I was so tired), but might give it a go this evening. Seeing and hearing Kiwis falling out of bars is nothing new to us living in Clapham, apart from the sea and sun we could almost have been home!
Today we will be exploring further, taking some pictures, and finding out more about New Zealand! So excited to get started...
