Place 49 – Day 373: Auckland – Kim’s Parents Have Arrived

.After waking around 07:15, we set off at 08:00 to get down to the airport. Before we left, Curtis saw that the city had a strip of cloud through it, which looked incredible!

Before we arrived, we stopped at the supermarket and grabbed an orange juice for Kim’s parents, ahead of their arrival.

Once we got to the airport, we parked up and waited for around 30 minutes until Kim’s parents came through the doors.

We said hello and headed out towards the car. As we went to do so, the heavens opened and so Kim pulled the car up for everyone to get in whilst Curtis paid for the parking.

We waited in the queue to leave for a while due to the barrier machine being broken. We were eventually let through without even showing our tickets.

We drove back to our apartment whilst chatting away.

Once we arrived back, we stopped briefly to deposit bags and then went out to get breakfast. We drove to Honey Cafe but it was closed, so we went to So French instead, which was excellent as ever! We saw the owner again and introduced him to Kim’s parents.

We each had a coffee and they were only selling crepes so we had one of those each.

Once we ate, drank and relaxed, we walked back to the car (via the pie shop).

We got back home and watched some vidoes on YouTube whilst relaxing with a coffee.

Curtis watched hockey at 13:30 and, whilst watching, was contacted by someone wanting to buy the Xbox so Curtis agreed and got that sold, having it picked up around 15:00!

Everyone started to get tired so people had naps and then Kim made some delcious sweet chilli beef with noodles for dinner.

Post dinner, we sat and watched the film ‘The Owner’ based on McDonald’s which was a really good film.

We all went to bed fairly early, but we needed it!

Tomorrow is Christmas day here, so we’re looking forward to relaxing, eating and drinking.

Also, a thank you to everyone for viewing our blog posts over the years. We are now on 13000 views and there is so much more to come so stay tuned over the next few months and years!

This time last year!

Poroporoaki!
