As you can tell from the delightful bruise on my leg I've had co-ordination issues during my first 12hours in Auckland.
I did manage to successfully get through customs after having to declare Murray mints as a food source I was carrying on me on my entry card.
And I wasn't about to throw them away before anyone says that.
Managed to navigate getting on a bus and to my hostel. After having a much needed shower and hair wash I was ready to hit Auckland.
Went for a bit of a wander to the harbour and sat and had a cider by the boats looking over at Mt Victoria, very nice in the sunshine.
Am having an early night as planning a trip to Mission Beach tomorrow and I'm planning on walking it along the coast so should take about 45mins if I don't get lost.
Update you soon.
