We’ve finally left the UK! The 30 hour flight was a bit of a killer, was sure my knees would explode. We did manage to catch the most excellent new Wallace and Gromit movie which I would recommend you all to see. It has some very clever touches and had about half the flight laughing.
Anyway, we made it to Auckland and will spend the first couple of nights in a basic hotel until we’ve managed to find some wheels. John is looking up some very amusing vehicles as I write! We’ve also actually now read our New Zealand guide book and got very excited indeed. John fancies a bungee jump (no thanks). Looking forward to becoming aquinted with a few geysers and volcanoes, going down a cool cave with glow worms (yipee) and other outdoor activities. Can’t wait to see more Gannets, my sisters will tell you that I got a little over excited last time I saw one! It will also be nice to see some of John’s family and have an unusal christmas in the warm weather.
But for now we’re still in Auckland. It isn’t particularly inspiring but has some impressive volcanoes and islands around it.
Will update you all with the latest capers as they happen.
Bye for now
Viv & John
