Travel day! This morning we had breakfast in the shared kitchen of our hostel in Sydney! Then we arrived by train to the airport and with Virgin Australia to New Zealand!
Everything worked out great! Food on board was also good! Customs control went smoothly. We were well informed beforehand and had no forbidden things like .B apples with us. But the official wanted to see our shoe soles if there was soil underneath! It took us a little while to get our rental car. There was no phone number or company name on the confirmation email. So we had to buy a SIM card for the mobile phone, download the app and call. We went with a shuttle bus about 10 min to the rental station. Drive left, steer right! To our hostel it was about 15 min where we were shopping in the meantime.
