Well, I went to sleep on the plane Sunday night & woke up Tuesday morning. Funny, it doesn't feel like I slept for 30 hours.
We're here in Auckland. Everything went smoothly & we got to our hotel but couldn't check in yet so we're just walking around & stuff. We went up to the top of the skytower (highest bldg in southern hemisphere) & are now resting on the grass in a pretty little park. Our hotel is right downtown so that's good. We'll probably clean up & rest up for a few hours & then take a city bus to see the sights.
Tomorrow we have an all-day tour planned to caves & hot springs & stuff.
I'm really tired. We walked a lot this afternoon - rode a ferry to an island and explored around, and went to a bar that's all made out of ice. It wasn't as interesting as Azure said - maybe a different one, but it was OK. I'm going to sleep soon ..... good night all!
