Pictures From Auckland, New Zealand

An amazing vibe here in Auckland. New Zealand feels familiar – sunny and laid back like California, but with its own incredible spin. I spent the day running all over the city, going up in the Sky Tower (the second largest building in the Southern Hemisphere), taking the ferry to historic Devonport, strolling through the shops in Queen Street, and checking out the amazing underwater shark, stingray, and penguin live displays at Kelly Tarlton’s. Tomorrow the book tour begins in earnest, with multiple radio and newspaper interviews, an appearance on Close Up, and speaking events at two libraries.
