Hello World - I have been absent for a while as I've been in Auckland spending time with my friend Lisa who has been visiting from Taiwan. She's returned home now (boo!) but I do have a whole bunch of photo's and stories to share from our adventure.
Starting out with the photo's below! My plane was really late into Wellington (never fly Jet Star!) so I missed meeting Lisa when she landed in Auckland which I felt pretty bad about.
However when we got into Auckland it was a beautiful day - perfect for a late lunch at the viaduct.
We spend the rest of the afternoon just having a look around Auckland - including Aotea square. Later in the evening we took part in the Auckland Ghost Tour - the tour guide could spin a pretty good yarn. But I wish that the tour guide had told us more about the history of Auckland - many of the stories he told related to recent history. Although he knew a lot of creepy stories about hotels/backpackers around the city - luckily ours wasn't one of them!
Well, I'll be back with more of our trip soon - until then - Happy Easter!
