The view from my deck at my lodging.  It was a beautiful home, and if anyone is going to NZ let me know.  I will be more than happy to provide the Airbnb contact to the hosts.

My new Holden.  I switched out the Ford that I arrived with to this.  The Ford had really bad tires, and the alignment was way off.  I got tired of fussing with the steering all the time.  I took it back and they gave me a brand new Holden.  It had like 200 km on it when I got it.  It’s a Malibu, but it looked a bit nicer.

Then, it was time to go…  I stayed at the Novitel hotel, adjacent to the terminal at Auckland airport.  My flight was at 05:30 am, so it was easier to get to the airport the afternoon before, rather than leaving Rotorua in the dark and driving all night on unfamiliar roads.  Plus, traveling with a bike box, this was a better plan for me.  Nice hotel, and you just walk across the walkway right to the AirNZ terminal… very easy.

Off to California… but…. see the next post!!!
