After a lovely 6.5 hour flight, we arrived. I can now agree with a number of friends that AirNewZealand provides very good service and a relaxing flight!
Mr Accountant had decided to arrange for a hotel room so we could catch up on our sleep in between flights and before our journey really begins.
We arranged to stay at the hotel Novotel airport, Auckland. We knew it was over the road from the airport, but hadn’t realised it was pretty much at the front door step…. Imagine landing a plane in your house and walking across the road to your neighbours and that’s your hotel…..
Since we didn’t have any baggage (it was meeting us in San Francisco) we got through customs in no time. Checking in to the hotel took all of 5 minutes and then it was straight up to bed! So with this all in mind we landed at 5.10am and were in bed by 5.45am.
After we slept like babies, making sure we set our alarms, and another 6 hours to go we decided to have some yummy room service. Of course like any traditionalist, the club sandwich made for an easy choice, Accountant decided to go with the gluten free option braised beef….
Being well rested and excited we can now say thanks and farewell to Auckland, i could possibly come back sometime soon for a longer stay… however, for now. It’s on to the USA!!
