Day 22 of our Visit to Australia and New Zealand

December 31st, 2011

We had breakfast in Auckland and then Peter, Cathy, Justin and Spencer flew to Dunedin. Steph flew home later in the day. ;-(

We started our day with breakfast in downtown Auckland. We walked down to the waterfront and back. Peter, Justin, Spencer and I flew out of Auckland for Dunedin late in the morning. Stephanie traveled back to Berkeley and had an early evening flight. Steph stuck around downtown and explored Auckland for most of the day.

After breakfast, we packed-up our bags and checked out of our apartment. Justin noticed the practical instructions on the washing machine.

Justin took a couple of moments to capture the view. I think this is panaroma-mode sideways.

Here we are at the airport and Peter is getting some NZD's at the ATM. The All Blacks (rugby) are used heavily in Air New Zealand advertising. They even contributed to a fun the safety video (which we saw 7 times) that also included Richard Simmons (remember him from the 80's? (wiki)). The "Fit to Fly" video is entertaining enough that I would recommend watching it once or twice (link).
