I’ve been staying with a friend of mine in Auckland. It’s made me incredibly lazy because it’s quite a hike into the city. Plus, I have a great book I’ve been reading, so I just sit and enjoy this fabulous view of St. Helier’s Bay all day instead of sightseeing. I think a nice break was needed anyway before I start on the next big travel portion of this journey. I’ll try to get some posts up about Tasmania soon. I’ve got a ton of pictures to go through from that leg of the trip, but will hopefully get through them in the next couple of days before I leave Auckland.
