My last day in New Zealand, and a fairly relaxed day. I take the opportunity to get some shopping, and then tackle the Sky Tower.

My first unwelcome discovery is the glass-fronted elevator, which surprises me by suddenly exposing me to nothingness halfway up the Sky Tower's stem. After the bungy jumping episode, I assumed I was reasonably good with heights, but not so. Fantastic views of Auckland are on offer here, but I'm on edge the entire time.

The volcano simulator in the Auckland Museum is much safer. It's really pretty good as it places you in an Auckland house and procedes to wipe out the city.
