Days 47 - 53 Auckland

After just about 22 hours with a stopover in Kuala Lumpur I reached in Auckland. The trip was rather unpleasant due to a snapped ankle which turned out to look quite bad after all the time sitting and walking.

Luckily I decided upfront to stay for 6 nights at this lovely Bed & Breakfast in Beachhaven, so there was enough time to give it some rest.

When I could to some extent walk again I went out to Devonport and visited the old naval fortifications and got some nice views from Mt. Victoria.

Some houses are in exceptional locations directly on the beach...

To get around easily I also bought a car, a good old 1997 Honda Accord and so I was all settled to drive to Waihi and visit some distant relatives.
