Our New Zealand Trip

On December 24th, we left home in Aptos, CA and drove to the San Francisco Airport. Our flight left right on time at 7:00pm. We arrived in Auckland 13 hours and 10 minutes later - or at ~5am on December 26th.

We spent the next 8 days on the island of Moturoa visiting Carol and CJ. Moturoa is in the Bay of Islands and I do not think that I have ever visited a place that I thought more beautiful. We had a great time tramping around the island, investigating bird nests and enjoying the beaches. There are ~20 families on the island and we had the pleasure of meeting many of them.

We left Moturoa on January 3rd and traveled to Wellington and Rotorua in the remaining days of our trip. We returned home on the 12th. Here we left on the 12th at 7:30pm and arrived home on the 12th at 10:45am.
