We arrived at our hotel Oamaru, NZ, about 11 pm local time last night. 48 hours door to door from our house to here. This was easily the worst flying experience in many, many years, top three or top five lifetime. Among other things, I was set back about $1,100 in unexpected (and unbudgeted) costs in order to simply get here.
Nonetheless, we are in New Zealand with danjite and khaybee and happy to be so. Everyone is ok, if a bit overtired and jet lagged. This morning we are off to do cheese, and later, penguins.
Irregular blogging will continue until morals improve.
