Hi everyone,well back in NZ after a wonderful flight home,everything worked out just fine. Yes,even your shall I say “British Weather” no,seriously the weather was actually good for traveling,not too hot,just right. I arrived back in NZ Christchurch about twenty mins or so ahead of schedule,we were due in at 0930hrs and I was actually outside the terminal building having come through the customs etc at the time we should have arrived.Not sure if it was a tail wind across the Tasman or not but we sure made up time somewhere which was good from my side of things.
Thanks very much everyone for making my stay in the UK so worthwhile,yes, it is a long way to travel but with friends like HWIers,it is in MOP only a short journey to make,I will for sure all being well,make this journey again.
However this thread is by no means closed there are some photo's from me that I will post in due course, so keep yer beady eye on this thread and I will post as soon as I get these photos sorted. In the meantime, take care,give my kindest regards to Hayley the next time you see her,
