After almost not getting on the flight in Melbourne because of a question over my Visa (Australian immigration sorted it out in no time!) I arrived in Aukland and checked into a hostel outside the city center in Mt. Eden called the Oaklands Lodge. I was lucky to get my own room for two nights at the normal dorm price. Because they were so booked, they sold a bed in a twin room (2 beds usually sold together)and someone never checked in for the other...Sweet...I love this place.

I met several great people straight away, Dave Cook from the UK, and Sumit Chugh from India. Dave is on a gap year after finishing college, and Sumit has been working in NZ for 4 months doing various IT projects. We all took a hike up Mt. Eden to eat some pizza and check out the city.
