We arrived in Auckland today really tired but safe and sound! Amazing views from the plane as we were descending the landscape is gorgeous! We now have our car, yay! And its a lovely little beast, indicators are on the opposite side to home though so i keep wiping the windows instead of indicating hehe Our hostel us lovely, just like staying at your grans house, loads of comfy sofas and books etc although i reckon its gonna be a cold one tonight as we get a free hot water bottle with our bed!! Tomorrow we are off exploring Auckland then the next day we are heading to Hobbiton to have a look around some of the scenery for lord of the rings (dont worry dad ill take loads of piccys for you!!) Then we head to Rotorus for some hot spa, mineral pools and sulphur smelling!

North of Queensland will be warm around that time. New South Wales e.g Sydney melbourne area will be cold and wet. where are you flying into! Youll def have to come visit.
