A quick stop over at Auckland airport to change flights to Christchurch and free internet access so a perfect time for an update to the blog. Left the Fiji Resort & Spa this morning at 11:00 to transfer to Nadi airport for our 14:00 flight to Auckland. Weather still hot and sultry but rain threatened for later so maybe just as well we're off. We have been extrodinarily lucky so far - so long may it continue! Bit of a delay with the flight, first they couldn't get the number of bags right so that took them 15 mins, how difficult can it be to count baggage, then an electrical fault that required an engineer, bit worrying, so overall a 30 min delay on a very hot and stuffy aircraft! Lovely smooth flight though but another delay on landing - no gate! Coupled with the fact that we had to eat the food we had bought for supper before we cleared customs as no food imports allowed here either and the lengthly queues through customs and bio searches our 2 1/2 hr stopover was reduced to 60mins. It seems that it's only the UK that lets you bring anything in the way of food into the country. We then had a 12 min hike to the domestic terminal,as no transport between terminals; still a bit of excercise in an otherwise sendentary day is probably a good thing. Beginning boarding now so will sign off. Resume when I can.....
