Hamilton to Auckland Sat 7th Jan. 12-24°C Sunny, some clouds.

Breakfast at Columbus coffee (great coffee & omelette), packed the car for our trip to Auckland airport for our flight home.

Lovely day, so we drove to Hamilton Gardens and had no difficulty in finding a park this time. Explored various themed gardens, all were very nice, but my favourite was the bamboo grove of the Chinese writer's garden.

Highly recommend a visit to these gardens, set high on the bank of the picturesque Waitomo River.

Boarded our Emirates flight, kept our pre-booked seats this time. Taxied out towards the runway, but then Flight Officer announced there was a technical problem and we were towed back. At least the aircon and entertainment system kept working while engineers troubleshooted the problem.
