Has anyone seen 'the terminal'? You know the one where Tom Hanks has a really bad day and can't catch his flight? Well today our day has been almost as bad as Tom Hanks'!
After a mega struggle to close our backpacks we set of from Dunedin bright and early this morning.....little did we know what mother nature had in store for us. Our first flight took us to Christchurch where we missed two of the biggest if not the biggest earthquakes since February by only and hour or so.........slightly relieved about that!
Obviously mother nature was not happy with this effort to thwart our travels so stepped up her game with a cloud of volcanic ash stretching from here to Chile, which incidently is exactly where we want to travel to.....doh! On arrival in Auckland we found that all international flight out of NZ had been cancelled and so here we are still stuck in Auckland whilst we should be on our way to South America! Fingers crossed we should be out of here on Thursday but i wouldn't hold your breath! Watch this space............
