Well I’m here and I’ve been so busy I’ve hardly been on my mac.
SO where do I start? Flew London-Seoul-Auckland – it was a mammoth flight but I was surprised at how easy it was. Once I’d watched four movies, eaten my breakfast at tea time and my lunch at midnight, read a few trash mags and crashed for a few hours (literally 3) we were nearly there!
Jet lag wasn’t a real issue although my two boys were awake from 4am two days in a row which nearly killed me. Anyway, I don’t have a huge amount to say except I’m loving New Zealand. I like the fact it’s not roasting hot (although the humidity is a bit of an issue esp at night) I love the food and the wine and the people are extremely nice.
So far we haven’t travelled a huge distance – I thought I’d explore in and around Auckland for a week. On our first day we visited Mission Bay which had a nice beach and was a pretty laid back place with some nice restaurants. We’ve also been to the Zoo (I don’t normally like them but I was very surprised at how spacious and fab it was) and fed a kiwi. We’ve kayaked which the kids thought was amazing (having been assured that there are absolutely no sharks in NZ – am I a bad mother for lying?!) We’ve also been across to Davenport and seen some fantastic beaches.
Tomorrow we are mountain biking in Woodhill Mountain Bike Park and Thursday plan on heading to Auckland museum to learn a little.
So, just really wanted to say ‘g’day’ everyone and hope you are all not missing me too much.
