Place 49 – Day 321: Auckland – Late Evening Burgers

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis left early in the morning but still got there at the same time as normal, even though there wasn’t much traffic. Strange.

Curtis didn’t have too much to do, but he then found a few things to do in the morning, followed by some extra cases being logged, too.

In the afternoon, Curtis helped train his new colleague and then he got given some data work to do (pretty much copy and paste work) which took him the rest of the afternoon.

Curtis drove home but stopped at the supermarket on the way back.

Both of us;

Kim got back home, showered and got ready to go out.

Kim was going for a few drinks with work colleagues in the city centre.

Kim had a couple of glasses of wine (she doesn’t like shiraz apparently!) And a cocktail before Curtis picked her up.

We went to Takapuna and got a burger from burger fuel. Curtis got a BBQ beef burger and Kim got a chicken burger. We also go sweet potato fries.

We finished the evening with The Apprentice and then it was bed time.

This time last year!

Place 49 – Day 289: Auckland- Rugby Corporate Suites!

Curtis’ Day;

Curtis’ day started very slow but he got some essential things done.

At about 10:30, the day got much more busy but very interesting. A specific part of some software wasn’t working and Curtis offered to help fix it which ended up taking most of the day and multiple people!

On the journey home, the traffic was incredibly busy, but Curtis still got home around 17:00.

Both of us;

Kim got home and got ready and we then got an Uber down to Eden Park. We went to Burger Fuel once we arrived and got the Korean chicken burger, which was just ok.

We got free tickets to watch the rugby from Kim’s work!

When we arrived at the stadium, we entered and went to the ‘lounge’. This was where there was a ‘paid’ bar and the seats were higher than the ‘regular’ seats.

We were approached by one of Kim’s colleagues who gave us tickets to go to the corporate suite!

We got free drinks and food and also got to watch the game from a box. This was an incredible experience, even though Auckland lost to a team in the division below them!




We were there for a few hours and then we got an Uber home. Our uber driver was really nice and we had a great conversation all the way home.

Once we got home, it was bed time.

This time last year!
