New Zealand 2012 – 4th January 2012 – The Jetlag Post

***Reminder – This text was written back in 2012, at the time of the trip. Adding to Blog today!!***

4.30am (yes AM!!!) New Zealand time ———- a good time for a catch up.

Yesterday, after we showered and freshened up, we hit the streets of Auckland………… One block away from the Sky Tower, we visited this first. Saw a nutter jump off the building!!

The latest trend over here is to be strapped to a harness on the end of a wire, and dropped over 300m. You can also do a Sky Walk, round the top of the tower on the outside. We both know what we would sooner be doing, which is watching them from the inside which is our plan for Friday when we come back to Auckland.We are having a nice 3 course dinner in the revolving restaurant…………

After this was booked, we headed down (hill) to the Marina. We found an info centre were we booked on the Auckland Harbour Bridge walk, similar to the one Suzanne did in Sydney with Michael. We then found a nice little restaurant / bar where we had an early dinner, and Suzanne had a huge plank of ribs.

A quick walk round the harbour, and it was back up the hill to the hotel for an early night, ready for our first long drive of the honeymoon…..See you tomorrow
