Default A little bit more of NZ ......

Our Saturday (30 April) evening arrival got off to a bad start with our Jetstar flight delayed a coupla hours, arrived a midnight. Even the upgrade to Business Class was not much consulation, as on an A320 this means you get in row 1 with a bit more leg room.

Checked into the Novetel over the road from baggage claim at 12:00 midnight, and checked out at midday Sunday - just what I needed, spend my first ever 12 hours on the north island in a fricken hotel room.

Picked rental RAV4, headed for motorway and Pukekohe, lunch, a walk, some sight seeing but no pics.

Overnight at Raglan - what quaint, sweet little spot that is, buzzing and humming with backpackers and holiday makers, plenty of cafes and restaurants open.

Found the Isobar (and a coupla pints of craft beer), and nice seafood restaurant via a seaside walk.

24 hour/2,600km from home, but Helen found her place.
