So, I’ve safely landed in New Zealand! I landed yesterday at 7am, ready to go. I even slept a whole five hours on the 13 hour flight! Wow (insert small levels of sarcasm here because I’m actually impressed I slept that much.. but also.. that’s not very much)!
As per my previous post on jet lag, I didn’t sleep after landing, we just went out and did things and it worked out great!
We saw the Sky Tower..
We went and got fish & chips takeout and ate it on the beach, Point Chev – apparently, “so kiwi.. ”
But that’s okay because it’s all been so incredible so far!
Moving on to today, we first climbed Mount Eden, the tallest natural point in Auckland, that also has a great view of the whole city..
Next, was Piha Beach.. Sprinkled with glittery black sand and filled with the sound of crashing waves, it’s one of New Zealand’s best & also most dangerous spots to surf.. Also it’s just plain gorgeous..
Finally, we went to Hallertau Brewey and tried some of their beers – which were super delicious. My favorite was #4, black beer..
My first two days in New Zealand are over, now bring on the rest!
