Yesterday, my 8 year old daughter and I arrived in Auckland, NZ. In an attempt to be budget conscious, and remembering fun travel during college, I chose to stay at the Auckland City Youth Hostel.
Great rates and a wonderfully central location. But the dorm like atmosphere and the shared bathrooms weren’t exactly a pleasant surprise for my daughter. 🙂
(The entire facility was very clean.)
I treated her to breakfast at the Langham Hotel right across the street. That was a great treat! She had great pancakes and I had the largest serving of bacon I’ve ever seen!
Fortunately, our hosts for the TONIC Conference have rented an apartment near the beach for us for the next few days!
