Summary of 3 days in Auckland: Good food. Nice people.

After arriving at 5am Monday morning I was able to check-in at the hotel at 7am which was really appreciated. I needed some more sleep (also to get sober 🙂 ). In the afternoon I did the “Coast-to-coast” Walkway. Only 16km (walk from the Pacific to Tasman sea). But you can see a lot! The only drawback: There was no pub at the Tasman-sea-end. So anyone who would like to do this – start from the Tasman-sea and end at the harbor (Pacific Side)….

Some more sightseeing the next day (Skytower, more Harbor, etc) and then visiting the “Father Ted’s Pub”  in the evening. Spend a couple of hours (and beers) with another cool Kiwi (Alan) and he showed me a really cool burger place (apparently Kiwis like EGG on their burgers – interestingly enough I liked it too!).
