Today we walked nearly 7 miles (according to Mrs. Dahlberg’s pedometer). We began our day with a walk down to Denny’s restarurant in Auckland, then loaded our luggage up on the bus for our flight that afternoon. We spent the entire morning touring Auckland, and it was beautiful, both in landscapes and weather!
We stopped at several spots with views of the city, and a large crater/volcano that overlooked the city skyline. Our morning began with a visit to Mission Bay, then Mount Eden & MJS Memorial Park!
We spent a couple hours enjoying the Auckland airport before embarking on a 3-hour flight to Sydney Australia! This trip brought our first time flying Qantas Airlines, and they served some of the best airplane food I’ve ever eaten - Bravo Qantas!
Upon arrival in Sydney, we took care of a few minor issues at the airport, then proceeded to drive into the city center to our hotel: Sydney Travelodge. We freshened up then walked about 20 minutes down to Darling Harbor to eat. After dining on burgers and pasta, we ventured outside to enjoy the harbor for free time. We rode the Ferris Wheel and shopped and wandered until 9pm - when we walked back to our hotel and turned in for the night. Just found out too that breakfast is at 6am tomorrow! Ouch!
