New Zealand 2013

For those of you interested in our New Zealand trip we just took, I'm going to update my blog with information and pictures about our trip.  In a nut shell, it was GREAT!  We were gone a total of 15 nights and went to Auckland (north island), and then most of the south island.  On our way home, we also stayed a few nights in Tahiti (but that's at the end of the blog).

The beginning:  Auckland, New Zealand.  We were there only one and a half days.  But that was enough to see Auckland.
 This is a good view of the sky line from the water -
This is taken from our balcony - it looks fake - but, it's real!
and we took it before the cruise ship came in to port.
 The views atop Glen Eden Hill (360 degree views)  Beautiful!
This is a Doggie Doo - you lift the lid (head) and dispose of the doo -

We went out on the America's Cup sailing boat:
This was a working boat - what we're doing is called grinding -

Our hotel is on the right - the Hilton Auckland Hotel -
When we checked in, they warned us that in the morning a cruise ship would be docked right outside our balcony so make sure to close your curtains.  At 6am it pulled up and they weren't kidding - it was right next to our room and it was a massive ship, as you can see.

We enjoyed Auckland, but were looking really forward to our week in the 
South Island with 
Active New Zealand - the tour company that we will be spending 
the next week with.
