View from the bus between Auckland and Tauranga

I've arrived safely in my new home. The flight was a lot better than I expected, despite some pretty hairy turbulence, and I am feeling pretty smug as I seem to have largely avoided jetlag other than my first evening in Auckland.

Already settling in to life in Beautiful Tauranga and have taken in some of the sights, all in brilliant peak summer sunshine. Ozone layer is at it's thinnest here though so my pasty British skin is well creamed to avoid burning. Managed to blister my feet on the hot sand though!

Work starts tomorrow. Feels wrong now i'm in holiday mode!
