Auckland. Where we feel auckward.

It is all coming back to us. The hotel shuttle driver reminded us If you are sitting behind the wheel on the right side of the car and you can see the curb out your side window, there may be a reason that Kiwi is honking at you besides sending you a friendly greeting.

We have in landed in New Zealand after a wonderful 12 hour flight. We had two delicious meals en route, watched a couple of movies and even slept. We could stretch our long legs out because when we checked in at the Vancouver BC airport they gave us the emergency row seats and they were lovely. With about 15 gracious crew to serve us, we felt like we were riding first-class instead of last minute economy!

We just rented a phone, got a sim card for the iPad and checked in at work by email. We are in a hotel in Auckland researching rental cars, brushing teeth, regrouping and planning to drive north tomorrow to stay in Bob and Sue’s beach rental for the next week. Who are Bob and Sue, you ask? Friendly folk with a holiday “bach” who when we asked, “Do you have Wi-Fi? replied “what is a Wi-Fi?” So. It may be a few days until you next hear from us. We are unplugged. :).
