Hello from Down Under

Postby Lazzah » Mon Mar 18, 2019 5:03 am

Hi all,

I doubt if anyone noticed but I haven't been around much for the last couple of weeks? That's because my partner Jacqui and I have been on a trip 'down under', spending the last 11 days cruising around New Zealand. We flew to Sydney via Hong Kong, where we spent a couple of nights. Boy was it a long flight (11 hours) and a further 8 hours to Sydney. We just left our last port of call in NZ, the Bay of Islands, and are now heading back to Sydney. When we get there we fly up to Hervey Bay in Queensland to spend three days with my cousin Alan and his wife before returning home via Singapore. I am not looking forward to the flight to London as it is 14 hours! One of the highlights of the cruise was visiting the Hobbiton Lord of the Rings movie set near Matamata.

I retired from work last August and had to spend my pension lump sum on something, after all!!

Hi Lazzah.
Saw the pictures from "Hobbit land" they are absolutely great.
Sounds like you've had a great trip so far. Enjoy the remaining days and I'll be looking forward to have you back in "Adrift mode" again.

Hi P.O.,

You probably weren't looking up at the sky at the appropriate moment but as we flew to the south of Copenhagen on the flight to Hong Kong I waved out of the window at you!

Bad timing on a visit to New Zealand, but it's a beautiful country, I've got a girl in my photo channel constantly posting amazing beaches and sunsets. (And of course she's crazy over LOTR, I think it's mandatory there )

You should've looked Daza up while you were there!

Yes, very, but luckily we didn't stop at Christchurch. Suggested a meet-up with Daza but it sadly wasn't possible. We flew out via Hong Kong and I saw on the news that there was a crash on the metro between two of the stations we travelled between. Fortunately both trains were empty.
