After a six weeks long trip and driving ca. 6000 km we finally arrived in the last city on our trip: Auckland. We returned the van and booked into the hotel Ridges Auckland. We liked very much Auckland. In the evening we had dinner and a cocktail on the hip Princes Wharf.

After taking the hop on hop of bus we took the ferry to Davenport and wandered half a day through this peaceful place just across Auckland. We did a bit of shopping,

had lunch and checked out many of the Victorian like cottages.

And last but not least we have been on the Sky tower Observation desk and tried to catch pictures of the people jumping down. They plummet 192 meters at 85 km an hour!

This was our last stop in New Zealand. We flew then to Thailand to the Phuket Island and rested for two weeks after the ‘stressful’ trip through New Zealand.
