Day 1: Into Auckland

by The Crew on July 9, 2011

Now this was a good start to the trip – flew into Auckland, jumped into a cab and headed to the Copthorne Hotel.

A quick check in and down into the Reception area. From there one of the staff directed us over to the Provedore pub – a great little pub over on the wharf.

As luck would have it, we wandered in at about 5 pm just when they we’re starting Happy Hour!  Wooooohoooooo!

$2 Beers – A Nice Start!

Heinekens were $2 each and the lads tucked in.

They also provide free sandwiches and a BBQ for free during this time.

Life can be very, very good sometimes.

From drinks we wandered over to the Kermadec Restaurant, across the road.

After a wonderful 4 course meal, a few wines and beers, we got tucked into bed for a nice early start the next day to ride the roads of the North island of New Zealand.

Cheers

Brendon
