Breakfast in the apartment, packed bags, last minute souvenir shopping - then time to head to the airport.
Dropped the car off early - luckily because there was a power surge at Auckland airport which knocked out all the IT networks, and broke the baggage system.
We queued and waited, then waited and queued - finally got thru security, and passport control etc to reach the gate 5 mins before boarding, although boarding was then delayed by about 30 mins. The teams at Auckland airport did an amazing job, under difficult circumstances.
Arrived in Melbourne only 30 mins late, taxi to Jen and Pete's to pickup the car, then dropped Sarah off at her car and headed home.
Fish and Chips for dinner, then TV and bed - absolutely knackered.
An amazing trip - the South Island of NZ is spectacular and majestic - travelling by campervan was sometimes challenging, but a great adventure.
Stay tuned for the next trip...
