1st time to Aukland, New Zealand and going for about 10 days before visiting Tonga. Will be by myself during the day and with a friend in the evening. Am interested in day trips. I would like to see everything I possibly can in the time frame available.I enjoy mixing with the locals when I am on holiday so any suggestions on places to hang out, day trips, coffee shops/cafes would be welcome
