    HEY! I get to Auckland the day before as well – so def should meet up before we hit the road running. There is also a place you can chat with others on the tour in the ‘Meet-Ups’ section, if you haven’t already.
    Yeah I’m on FB too – will make it good to recognise someone before we get started. One friendly face at least. Bec

    Hi Stephanie, I’m always in for a drink ;)would be geest meeting you all. I will be ariving at 1 pm so that won’t be a problem. Are you staying at the mecure hotel aswell? Maybe it’s easier to meet in the lobby at 7:30 pm so we can walk together to the pub?

    Hey Angelique, Tasha and I are staying at Rydges but we can definitely meet you in the lobby of the Mercure at 7:30 and go from there :-). Can’t wait to meet you!!

    That would be great! I will tell rebecca and molly about this through fb. I will be in the air from theusday so I probably can’t response to you after that. So 7.30 is a date! Can’t wait to meet you all. But First the long flight! ;) see you soon!!!
