The flight was less painful than I had been dreading, and we got a surprisingly decent amount of sleep. That was good since we landed very early and had about 5 hours to kill before checking in. So, obviously, we went to the Sky Tower. Pretty excellent place for coffee, and the lounge sells liquor! I love New Zealand already. ;-)
We just checked in and got to our room. I hope I do not look as disheveled as I feel.
