Ok, I've made it to Auckland. Finally. That plane ride was not my idea of fun. 13 hour flight and I slept a grand total of 1 hour. Had a long sleep last night so I' all rested up and ready to go today, but the weather isn't that ready anymore. Highs of 59F and winds of 30-40 mph for the next 3 days are being forcasted. I'm planning on just hanging around Auckland the next 4 or 5 days and then hopping on a NZ bus tour that takes backpackers around the North and South islands, stopping at all the sites along the way. So pretty much I'm thinking I won't have any new blog entries for about a week or so. The tour is supposed to take about a 25 days, but you can hop off and stay longer in certain towns then bet back on the next bus that comes through so I'm thinking it'll be at least a month-long tour. Now, what to do in Auckland for a few days??
