Went on a wine tour in Blenheim around the wineries of the Marlborough region. Obviously tasted a lot of nice wines and purchased some too. The tour guide was a bit crazy and judged us as knowing nothing about wine (partly true) and just coming along for the tasting but we did want to learn something aswell!Said goodbye to Angela and started our trek back to Auckland which involved the ferry and then a night bus! But we made it and left New Zealand for New York!
Where are Millie and Helen today then?

Arrived into Auckland very late at night and checked into the not so great base hostel. Spent the next day wandering around trying to find a car to hire and when we finally found one there was a little bit of time to have a walk around the city centre. Drove up to Millie's cousins, Brendan, who lives about 40 mins drive from Auckland. Stayed there for 3 nights with his wife Charlotte and two kids, Niall and Orla. They have a lovely house with a gorgeous view...
