Hi Mum

Aukland 30th April - 1st May

NEW ZEALAND | Sunday, 1 May 2016 | Views [300]

We arrived to Aukland exhausted and after 15 hours and two flights (one from Melbourne to Wellington and another from Wellington to Aukland) at about 12. We spent the afternoon shopping around queens street, had pizza for dinner and then had a very early night.

On the Sunday we had brunch and then headed out of town toward Mt Eden, one of the 50 inactive volcanoes and climbed up to the top. The view from the top gave a 360 degree view of Aukland which was brilliant and the hill wasn't too bad of a climb either. We got the train back to the city, visited the supermarket, had dinner and then watched a film (Zombieland) at the hostel (Nomads, was a bit grotty to be honest and our room stinks). We're off quite early tomorrow morning to the bay of islands where our month hop-on-hop-off coach tour begins. Apparently the bay is beautiful and we're hoping to be lucky enough to swim with the dolphins there, so fingers crossed!
