We headed south to get to Auckland and on the way we stopped off at the Nobilo winery based here. Needless to say we sampled a few of their wines before moving on to Auckland. We got to the camp site and then went to do some shopping, managing to get 2 pairs of glasses repaired for free by the local opticians (they took pity on us).

We ventured into Auckland today and took a trip up the SkyTower. Its a big tower which allows people to throw themselves off the top attached to a cable if they want to. We spent the day wandering around the city (which traffic wise was a lot busier than anywhere else we have been) and taking int he sights

Our last day here in New Zealand. Its been amazing. The south island is the most beautiful place full of sights that blow your mind away. The south of the north island is the better part of the north but hey, you can't have it all. We've met some wonderful people, travellers and locals, as well as seen and done some amazing things. Quite possibly the best place yet. Its now onto Fiji for 10 days and then the cook islands so no updates for a while. After that its LA for our last leg of the tour across the USA!
