The dreaded last day, we'll driving down from the Bay of Islands to Auckland, where we meet up with the group for our return flight to Europe. The end of our wonderfull adventure.
Delicious breakfast made by Catharina and Mieke of the Villa Maria Petit, wished we could stay there longer ...
A stressful drive towards Auckland to be in time for our return flight.
Had a quick loo stop at Hunderwasser's famous toilet (very dirty and rundown ... in urgent need of some TLC), rush-rush towards Auckland, ... to hit noon rush-hour.
Quickly dropped off car at NZ Rent-a-Car Centra Hotel ... but totally forgot to fill the tank! Charge it, we've got a plane to catch, did not wait for the bus and decided to take a taxi to the airport, rush-rush ... got there in time, forgot to pay the departure tax at the separate office (thought we needed to pay at the customs check ... NOT!), go back, pay first and get back in line ... are you kidding?!
NO HOTEL ENTRY AVAILABLE.
PLEASE COME BACK LATER.
