Getting really excited now - fly to Auckland on Friday with a day trip to Wellington on the following Wednesday. Not an extensive recce I know - but gives us the chance (without children!) to see what we really think about living close to a city again. Husband has a few agencies lined up, and we will be having a look around the areas that we have on the list. It's such a short visit - but it's our first - so it's insurance really so that when we arrive later this year it's not as much if a shock!!

Has anyone else done this? And does anyone have any advice of what to do/see? I was hoping not to have to hire a car and try to rely on buses around the city - but I know we probably will for a couple of days.


Soooooo excited
