Day 3: FULL CIRCLE THROUGH NORTHLAND
Julie and I got up from our restful night at the motel in Whangarei. This time, we knew better by not having breakfast and heading onto the highway due south back to Auckland. It was pretty uneventful, especially since we did the drive pretty early.
Ultimately, we would return to the city where Julie and I checked in. We had a lot of errands to do in the city knowing that the next day, we would have to make the three-hour drive east to Whitianga to prepare for the big day.
My parents and relatives had already been touring New Zealand before we even got here. So our family reunion (which wouldn’t happen until we’d get to the wedding site in Whitianga) coincided with the end of their 2-3 week visit to the country. Meanwhile, this was merely the beginning of our own.
In the mean time, we were getting our tux rentals (for Dad and I; hopefully the size we got for Dad would work since he was still with Mom and the aunties). After that bit of errand running, we then had to support Julie to pick up her dress. I recalled we met up with cousin Nicole, and chilled out with us for a bit as we were randomly doing a whirlwind of errand-related activities. We really didn’t have time to experience what the city of Auckland had to offer because of these errands, and we only had one night in the city.
And so the day passed though there were no photos taken as there wasn’t any sightseeing on this day.
