We only had two nights in Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, so we had to make the most of it. Although very metropolitan, I liked Auckland due to its smaller size, about one and half million people, hilly terrain and great active waterfront. Like other major cities we've visited on this tour, there is a strong Asian presence which means lots of Asian cuisine.

For "Lord of the Ring" fans, North Island is the land of the Hobbits where fans can visit the shire

The Sky Deck Tower is a great landmark when walking the city. You always know where you are.

We hired a tandem on our free day and rode the northern suburbs across the harbor
