We have had a frustrating day in Auckland and still not managed to get Terry's missing case so we have decided to buy a few essentials i.e. some trousers so he does not need to wear mine any more!... and we are heading north.
We hit the same bad traffic as yesterday getting from the airport out of Auckland but once over the bridge and north travelling became easier.
The holiday feels as though it is just starting as the campsite we have stopped at, Wiawera, is in a small cove with the sound of the sea lapping near the campervan. We have not decided how to tackle the rest of the week as all our plans and maps are in the case that is lost.
