I took off from Cairns at 12pm yesterday. After two flights, I finally made it to New Zealand around 12am (no, it wasn’t 12 hours of flying). I didn’t book a place to stay as I decided to save some bucks and sleep at the airport. Well, they actually had a lounge setup for those who were needing to get some sleep. Sadly though, the lounge was only open until 5:30am and the bus I need to catch into Christchurch city wasn’t until 7:30am. I really would have enjoyed that extra bit of sleep, but oh well, I’m up already.
Now to explore New Zealand!
