The scary santa!

Ferry to Davenport with Pete.

Classic! Love to see this in England!

Auckland Sky Tower


You can jump off it if you're mad enough! Nevis bungee was...

I'll stick to this for now!

Barry with his sizzling hot plate!

Woke up feeling sorry for my poor head, and horrified to discover I may have done some permanent staining damage to the teeth! All's good after showering though and I meet Pete who takes me for breakfast at this gorgeous quaint coffee shop they discovered last time. Met up with Barry who was now up and showered and we hit Starbucks, where I indulged in some spiced pumpkin latte that Pete recommended but didn't like it - far too into my Chai Latte's at the mo! Spent ages wandering the bookshop looking for my next read...Nelson Mandela's autobiography, and then Pete and I jumped on the ferry to Devenport to kill a couple hours whilst Baz sorts all sorts out. We had a wonderful time chatting away about anything and everything. Met up with Baz again to see the skytower!

They (thankfully) wanted to go to the Asian food hall for dinner that I saw last time and whne Baz's food came out on the sizzling hot plate, we all had to move about 2 metres away because of all the spitting that went on forever! I had paad thai! God I miss Asia!

Later we went to the cinema and that's the first time in the 7.5 months i've been away and it felt great to do something so normal! Watched 'The Departed' which was great but can you believe it they don't do sweet popcorn over here - just salt or caramel! Walk home, well have running to keep up with them both, and say our goodbyes again as they're flying to Santiago in the morning and i'm starting my last 3 day tour of the Bay of Islands...
