We reached the city of Auckland after a long journey of twenty-seven hours. We were not so tired but Joseph was. Though, he somehow managed to keep up himself for the adventure coming ahead. We checked out from the airport and looked for our cab that we hired. It was noon, and the city was busy. We headed for our pre-booked hotel- Albion Hotel in Auckland.
The city was so different from that in our country. My heart was pondering over the thought of exploring this beautiful city. I took out my brand new camera to click the glimpses of the city. Meanwhile, we reached our hotel. It was situated in the central Auckland, and was at mere twenty minutes drive from the airport.
We reached the hotel and were pleased at the view of the hotel. It was a beautiful four storey building standing amid the busy surroundings. We were greeted by the affable staff and Fill completed the documentation that was required. We were then ushered to our room. It was a decent hotel with impressive decor. The room was simply furnished and was facilitated with a television and some other basic amenities. There was a restaurant and a bar in the hotel. There were many cafes and restaurant in the nearby localities as well, as we could see from the window of our room, which provided a clear view of the city’s busy routine.
We refreshed ourselves quickly and left for the restaurant to have our lunch. We were hungry and the food was delicious. Its so much fun to taste different cuisines from different places, isn’t it?
Everything was so different than that at our place. People, food, environment; everything was far from what we experience at our cities. There was hustle bustle and people were following the discipline. We were feeling great with the choice of place and hotel. I wanted to start our tour just after the lunch, but Joseph was very tired and we both decided to postpone our exploration to the next day. So we went to our room at Albion Hotel in Auckland and settled Joseph, and after he was asleep, we both enjoyed a glass of wine in the bar.
