This morning we said goodbye to Auckland - the city that had become our home on and off for the last 10 days - and 10 days is a lot on this journey! That also meant that we had to say goodbye to Jodi and Sarah, our friends in Auckland - but we will be returning! Before we left Jodi gave us a great headsup about a shop in Auckland that sold ENGLISH products!! So we ran down to the shop to see what it had! YAY!
Heinz Beans (Did you know that Heinz in Aus and NZ is called WATTIES? What is that about?? Their ketchup is foul).
Terry Chocolate Orange
Walkers Salt and Vinegar (YES!)
and... Wine Gums!
It's things like this that make you really homesick! They had hobnobs there and alsorts!
We headed out of Auckland on the Southern 'motorway' (if that's what you want to call it!), highway 1.
