Kia Ora!!! We are finally here - Both feeling a bit weary, but very smooth flight all in all - definately need a break from eating - we were offered pizza at 6am this morning, just an hour before breakfast was served, which was somewhat bizarre!
Landed at Auckland this morning, and 3.5 hr drive got us to our little cottage in Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands on North Island where we're staying for three nights. Weather is a bit grey and drizzly at the moment, but the views are still spectacular. I am sitting looking over the river vally, with a lemon tree just outside the window. However weather is very mild, about 22 degrees C, so we are sitting with the wndows open despite the drizzle. Not sure on plans for tomorrow - the weather looks set to stay like this until the weekend, so maybe explore the local area. At least we'll get some use out of our new waterproofs :)
