Arrived in auckland and i am finally fully over jet lag/tierdness/hangovers. Melbourne was a lot of fun and the people i met there were really great, i will go back!
I never had much time in auckland due to the time difference, i left melbourne at 12 and got to auckland at 6 and it was a 3 hour flight! I was never going to do much getting in at that time but when i checked into my hostel i got a free meal which was really good. Unfortunatley thats about where the good stopped, the hostel was a real hole (and i have been to methil!) the bunk beds were falling apart, the lockers where cheap and not very cheerful and the staff there were as friendly as a shovel to the head.
I left to go to rotorua the next day and some how managed to catch the air bus after the "excellent directions" from the staff. Hopefully i will have a better time when i visit in a weeks time again.
