City of Sails I
04.02.2008 25 °C
The first thing that hit me about NZ as we got off the plane was the heat! A cheery (worryingly!) customs officer assured us it was one of their record summers so I'd best get used to this and fast! Sarah seems fine about it of course!
We picked up the car without a hitch (the woman who I honestly thought was a small man was an amusing distraction though!) and almost immediately dubbed him “Matt” for reasons I will allow a select few to understand!! Sorry everyone else! Auckland itself is like no other city we have driven in, so little traffic you'd be excused for thinking you weren't in a city at all save for the skyscrapers on the horizon.
The hostel seems nice, a quiet street and everyone seems friendly. We are so tired that sadly we succumbed to our first fast food meal but we'll sort out proper food shopping and stuff tomorrow.
Right now though we are both dead in the water so a well earned sleep is in order.
