We are in Auckland, although I can't really say that we've seen it.
Our flight arrived at 11:50 pm local time. By the time we lugged the sleepy kids off the plane, got our luggage, talked to them about the still missing bag with all our toiletries, makeup, etc.., got through customs and made it to the hotel that I'd booked for what was supposed to be our last night of our North Island vacation... it was 1 am.
Perhaps the most amusing part of this leg of the journey was watching our sleepy almost-six-year old try to walk to the taxi. She was so tired that she resembled a drunk sailor trying to wobble around. We finally balanced her on the handle of our luggage trolley.
So, we are off to catch our flight to Christchurch now. Aussie photos will follow from there.
