In New Zealand!

28 Jun

Let me start out by saying that so far the Kiwis are the nicest people on the planet. Granted, we’ve only talked to a few, but so far I’m impressed. We arrived this morning at 5am (felt like 3am to us). We had booked a hotel room just for the morning to nap and take showers before we drive off this afternoon. I am a giant idiot and booked the wrong day. The hotel was fully booked. The super nice hotel guy was able to put us in a room that people had checked out of earlier. Housekeeping hadn’t come, but he gave us fresh sheets and towels and we remade a bed. We were very grateful to sleep a little and take showers.

Now we are waiting at the airport (free wifi!) for our rental car. The sun is shining and the roads that were closed yesterday are now open. We will test Rob’s car chain skills later.

New Zealand ho!
