Damn I could not believe that I will have to fly 24 hours (not including the 5 hours break we spent in Hong Kong) just in order to start my vacation of my life (the one I was dreaming about for the last 8 years), we landed in the north island of New Zealand around noon, there seem to be good weather a fact that will change in the next few weeks. We crashed in the first hostel we found and went to sleep, what appeared to be a huge mistake, we forgot the hours difference between our home town in Israel and NZ (12 hours) so we had a massive jet lag problem and slept during the day and wre awake most of the night for the first few nights. we wondered around Auckland, which was kind of regular city for us, and started the plans for the journey. First, we need to buy the car, the destination was the backpackers' car market. we entered to this place saw the marvelous red van, and immediately fell in love with it, couple of hours later it was our car. Just an extra day of arranging the traveling stuff and off we go, the next destination is to reach the northern tip of NZ north island.
