Day 1 – Exploring Auckland

This morning we walked around Auckland. We had breakfast at Fond(ou) Cafe. This afternoon we took the ferry to Waiheke Island. A very nice boat ride to a very beautiful island. We took a hop-on-hop-off bus to Onetangi Beach where we walked on the beach and ate lunch.

I drank my first Bundaburg Ginger Beer. It was the best ginger beer I’ve ever had. I thought is was just distributed in Australia and surrounding regions, but the company’s website indicates it’s available in Alpharetta. I’ll have to look for it when I get home.

Tonight we went to the top of the Auckland Sky Tower at sunset and then went out to dinner at Da Vinci’s Restaurant just down the street from our hotel. The sunset was spectacular and so was the pizza at Da Vinci’s.
