Just a quick note to let you know we're now in Auckland! Flight to Sydney from Jo'Burg was long and pretty bumpy for most of the way but Philippa managed to sleep for five hours (thank you very much to Ike for the sleeping pills!!) Our plane was late landing as well so we only had 20 mins to jump on our connecting flight but we managed it and our bags did too! Nice to speak to Sarah whilst in the same country and tell Adam we're looking forward to the body boarding.
Thanks for all your messages. We'll post some more photos when we can- off to the Bay of Island tomorrow! Will be nice to have the freedom of driving ourselves from now on :)
