Where I stayed
Anywho! Today is a new day and Auckland won us over today especially as The Kiwis are "sewwper" friendly and George made the bold move suggesting we get a ferry to Wahiki Island which can only be described as LUSH! We indulged in trekking, beach-ness and weird arty sculpture things which probably used by us for comedy photo opportunity rather than artistic contemplation.
It was HOT STUFF today and Wells and I have rather interesting "tan lines" on our arms. Not to mention I was wearing cross shaped sandals and I have just taken them off and let me tell you- it's NOT a pretty sight..
To say the least, George and Wells have been staring longingly at my Merrell's (http://www.merrell.com/UK/en-GB/Product.mvc.aspx/18596W/38786/Grey/J87716?dimensions=0) gorgeous aren't they?! - especially when considering the numerous amount of trekking we will inevitably be up to. SO after trailing all of two shoe shops in Auckland, I sat and played fruit ninja while they panic bought "multi-terrain" shoes (they wish they were Merrells); just in time to leave them at home for our first walk. Wells' blisters defintely proved they will come in handy at some point.
We may not blogging for a while as we are being spontaneous and hiring a car (a gorgeous cream Nissan probably made in about 1965) and going t'up north for a week to see the Bay of Islands and other spots/beaches that aren't covered by our bus tour.
We are very much enjoying our O.E. (The Kiwis' name for travelling meaning overseas experience-they really have far too much time on their hands!)
So peace out! Jen, George and Wells! xxxx
