After travelling over two nights I finally arrived in Auckland. I was met at the airport by a familiar face whose identity shall remain nameless, for the time being at least! Anyway after settling at the hotel I was given a quick trip to Auckland City Centre where I was very keen to try out the Sky Tower which happens to be the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere and part of a super-casino complex..
The pictures show the tower, a fantastic view over Auckland and the glass floored lift which (I think) is the main reason why one well known F1 photographer kept his feet very firmly on the ground! Anyway this was a good start to the trip. It did feel strange doing this at the equivalent of about 3am in UK time!
