Today we got a little bit of a later start thankfully because we have been moving around a lot lately. We ate breakfast at the hotel and loaded up the bus at 10:00 am. After an hour and a half bus ride to the Auckland airport, we unloaded the bus and headed to check in. After we quickly went through security, we separated to go eat before we would go to the gate. Most of us grabbed some food and after about 45 minutes, we learned what gate we would be boarding at. We then got together at Gate 3. When the gate opened, we were seated without a hitch. After this, we started to think back to everything we had done in New Zealand and that we were all so lucky to be on this trip. So far all of us have been having the best time and we’re all looking forward to the Australian experience. On the plane, we were served lunch. After the 3 hour flight, we got all of our luggage and went through customs. We then met the new tour guides and bus drivers that would be with us in Sydney. We traveled to our new hotel, Cambridge Hotel Sydney. For dinner, we all went our own way. At the end of the day, everyone had a great day and we’re so excited to be in Sydney!
