The trip here was brutal, 13 hrs on a plane from LA. A family was sitting in front of us and as soon as we would fall asleep it seemed like their girl would start to scream bloody murder. I had my neck pillow and sleeping shades and somehow got some sleep.
But so far, it has been worth it. We spent a lovely day in Aukland and today we are in Rotorua. We hiked to the summit of a small mountain and had a lovely view of the beach, and then tonight we are going to a Maori cultural show w/ dinner.
It is fun to hear the accents here and the funny different ways they say things. They like to call trash, rubbish which is funny.
Driving on the left side of the road is a bit crazy. The passenger sits where the driver should and away we go. Thankfully we have our GPS and have just been following that.
It is so fun being in a different country.
