We arrived at 5:20am New Zealand time this morning after a long 12 hour plane ride. We've checked into our hostel and are about to begin our day. Our schedule so far:
1) Check in/shower
2) group breakfast
3) Auckland War Memorial Museum
4) Viaduct Harbor for lunch
5) Auckland Art gallery.
After our busy day of exploring the city and from traveling the day before we are sure we'll be ready to relax!
The long travel was well worth as we stepped out of the Auckland airport into the warm New Zealand air! We were met by a shuttle to take us to our first hostel. The ride there was interesting as most of us rode on the left side of the road for the first time! There are many new things for us to experience over here!
However, our traveling wasn't without its hardships, as all of our fruit was confiscated at the Auckland border patrol. Also tensions were high as one group member stole the other's pillow on the plane ride over...but all has been forgiven and new friends have been made! Check back soon for another blog post!
