Kia Ora! (Welcome!) We made it to Auckland early this morning! We flew Air NZ from San Francisco- the airline is wonderful! We're spending some time in central AKL this morning before we go to our hotel to get some sleep. It's beautiful and warm here, AKL seems like a fun city. We're walked around Albert park for a bit which had some very interesting trees and tons of birds.
First stop this morning was the waterfront
We're in Auckland until monday morning when we'll take a bus north to Kaitaia and plan to start hiking from Cape Reinga on Tuesday.
Thanks for reading,
