New Zealand Adventure
No Photos 29th Mar 2018
Day 28 Last morning in Auckland than off to Hong Kong this afternoon

Wandered down to the buzzy waterfront last night and had a meal at a steakhouse B had noticed on our earlier trip to Auckland. He had a really nice steak and T had fried squid with aioli sauce. Wandered past the harbour. Saw a tour when you could go on a large yacht and have a race against a similar yacht as in the Americas Cup. Alas we have no time as leaving late this morning. Also a bit scary!

Packed and and had our last NZ breakfast. Really nice spread at the hotel, so had a hearty breakfast before catching the shuttle bus to the airport for our afternoon Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong.

Flight good and  I watched Shape of Water and Gone with the Wind. I had never seen the latter all the way through so it was an ideal opportunity. About 2 hours into the film, all the screens along our side of the plane froze and I thought that once again I would not see the whole film! However after dinner they managed to restore it and I completed the film. 

 Arrived in HK at 2130 ( body clock thinks it is 0230am). Staying at Regal Hotel - just along a walkway from the airport. Hot chocolate and sleep beckon......Just had brekkie and a wander around the hotel. It has a nice outside pool but no time to use......

However another  first for us! The hotel has the world’s largest pillarless grand ballroom in the world!

Off to Heathrow this afternoon so that is the end of our blog apart from one last one tomorrow with a summary of snippets  about NZ. It has been a wonderful adventure and New Zealand is a beautiful country that will leave us with many fond memories.
