Finally, another long flight later, we arrived in New Zealand! Checked into our AirBnB for the next few days, and fought the jet lag. Some nutritious food & relaxation was needed. The views we were greeted with definitely helped…

Auckland is a nice city, lots of surrounding green spots, with a town centre the same as most others in the world – nothing spectacular.

We found a great beach close by at Waikowhai Park, and settled on a spot with a great view for some strength training – one days rest after flying is enough for our budding Ironman…

Running was next on the agenda the following day – which meant finding a perfect spot – along the seafront – super beautiful (very windy) and a 75 minute runย for Michiel!
