Off down under, to cold rainy weather. It’s winter in the southern hemisphere, and having a very temperate climate, the Kiwi’s like to pretend you don’t need heat. Ahem.
Air New Zealand flight cramped – I hate 777 3-3-3 layout. But the food is well above average for plane food, and the wine selection very good. Alas they ran out of the Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir in one run. Switched to Marlborough SB rather than sully my lips with their syrah.
Judging by the wines served in economy, this trip is long overdue.
