We arrived in Auckland about 4pm, we got a special offer with Base backpackers where we paid an extra $3 and received a free meal, drink, 1hr spa and 1hr internet and as we were booked in the sanctuary we also got free champagne between 9pm and 930pm!!
After putting our bags down me, Kat and Sarah went to the spa. It was really cool as it was on the roof we had great views of the city. after the spa we went and had our free dinner then went to the bar. We played a game of killer pool which we didnt do too well in. Then came free champagne time, the other 2 girls we were with didn't like champagne so me and Kat got theirs as well which was good!!
After this we went to Globe bar to meet some other people from the bus. Megan was there as well who we met on the bus to Queenstown. Had a really good night, chatting, dancing and drinking!!
The following day we woke up with a headache and Sarah shouting it was 8.15am. Our bus up to the Bay of Islands left at 7am!!! Me and Sarah ran downstairs to call Kiwi Ex and see if we could get on the bus the following day but the receptionist told us the bus had broken down and hadn't arrived yet. How lucky was that? We ran back upstairs, managed to get Kat out of bed (just) packed all our stuff and ran back down. The bus turned up 10 mins later, everyone else had been sitting outside waiting for over 2hrs!!!
That evening we had a very early night!!!
