So, we're finally underway! After a few months of planning our first holiday in New Zealand has begun. It was a pretty low key day, really. Just a train ride from Newcastle to Sydney and a night in the airport hotel. Train ride was fine (for Australia) and the hotel is good. In the morning, we will just have a 15 minute walk to the airport - heaps better than getting up at 4:30 tomorrow morning!
Anyway, we are going to get a good night's sleep and let you know more tomorrow.
