Time to say goodbye to the campervan :-(

We finally left Takapuna at 11:30am. We managed to get to the hostel without any problems and once we had unloaded all our stuff into the room, we then drove the van to the depot just next to the airport.
From here it all went downhill. We waited over and hour for someone to check the van and give our deposit back. Once this was sorted, we then caught the courtesy bus to the airport, to catch a shuttle back to the city. Well the shuttle didn't leave for about 20mins, waiting until it was full. Then it took almost 2hrs to get back to the city. A journey which normally takes around 20 to 25 mins. What a nightmare!
After showering and doing launfry we went out to watch Lions v Manawatu. A good match to watch after the shambles of the test. Lions won 109 - 6. Shane Williams was brilliant. Came home feeling very pleased.
