After an early start (up at 03:30am ) we arrived at Canberra airport without any problems, thanks to Phil’s directions, and seemed to spend the rest of the day in an aluminium tube eating airline meals. The only ‘highlight’ was about half an hour before landing in Auckland when an 18 yr old lad projectile vomited over a selection of passengers around him which gave the cabin staff a nice little job to do before landing. Once we had landed we had to wait for a medical team to OK disembarkation before we could go on our way.
Diana’s cousin Fiona was there to meet us and we followed her home to Howick in our hire car. After a pleasant evening over one of her delicious Thai curries we collapased thankfully into bed.
Sorry, no pictures until tomorrow.
