[#HELLOSIHUIGOESNZ Oct-Nov 2017]
We reached Auckland around 11:30pm. It’s quite a long flight, nearly 10 hours straight flight. Thanks god for the 2 meals in flight, we are probably full and decided to go straight to our first airbnb, wash up and have a good sleep (and in between, doing some works etc).
I didn’t take much photos of our first accommodation because it’s really small to capture in detail. They do have everything like a small kitchen, small wardrobe and a small queen size bed. That very night was raining heavily, and we could feel the raindrops hitting the caravan badly HAHA.
Our plan for the day is AUCKLAND > MATAMATA > ROTORUA :)
Our travel time was about 2hours from Auckland to Hobbiton Movie Set. Our next meal will be only during our dinner time at our 2nd home. So our plan was to have a good meal and this include one of our favourite (in this 20 days in NZ) is at Best Ugly. Best Ugly are famous with their bagels, and we are not disappointed at all. ☺
