We are lucky that we could experience the Island yesterday in spite of Emilia's fever. She was strong and she needs to - it's still a few days ahead of us.
We got up knowing that we have to return the vehicle later today, eat up our fridge and there is still one or the other point on our Auckland agenda for today.
Packing and tiding up took us longer than expected. Nearly 2,5 weeks made our campervan our home with all the consequences, e.g. "Have you see my toothbrush? Yes, yesterday it was lying... here." :-)
After 80-90% of work done we went to the city centre to climb (15 min only!) on Mt. Eden. This is a hill with a grassy crater reminding that once upon a time it was a real volcano. There are even two more volcanos in Auckland.
Mt. Eden delivered what it promised: great views over the CBD, the districts around and the bay. And the deep crater covered with grass adds some uniqueness to these views.
The traffic jam back and the time spent around the car made it the only touristic attraction of that day.
After car return we walked to the hotel with a feeling of leaving something behind - strange, isn't it? And the fact that our journey was coming to its end made us melancholic for at least 200m walk :-) Soon we were back in good moods - Singapore was waiting!
See you there.
