In 3 days, we’ll have been in New Zealand for two weeks! Robert and I have spent the majority of our time here in Auckland and we’re both very ready to get out of here. It was enough time, perhaps more than enough, for us to do a lot of Auckland sight seeing and planning, but Auckland is like any other big city and we’re pretty over it. So starting on Wednesday we’re hitting the road and heading to the South Island! We’re both very ready for this and getting a little stir crazy in Auckland. With the purchase of Homer, the Honda Odyssey of Robert’s dream (did you get that connection? The Odyssey, Homer?), we have been able to explore the outskirts of Auckland and it’s incredible how beautiful and lush the wilderness is a mere 30 minutes away. Nonetheless, we’re ready to get this NZ trip actually started.
