We had a stop over in Hong Kong for about 3 or 4 hours. It was a really big airport.
Arriving in New Zealand on the airplane we could see a lot of New Zealand. Once off the airplane we headed for our hotel. After a few days near the Auckland International Airport we headed for Waitete Bay in our rented van.
Dad drives the van most of the time. It's hard because here in New Zealand they drive on the wrong side of the road.
It took us four and half hours to get to Waitete Bay but normally takes two and a half. We are staying at a friend's cottage by the ocean. The closest town is five minuets away. There is only one store there and a bunch of houses. It is very hard to find internet here so we have to drive twenty minuets to get access.
So far I have learned that people from New Zealand are called Kiwis and the capital is Wellington. I thought that Auckland was the capital.
