After a slightly sad farewell from Whangarei saying goodbye to friends we were all very excited to finally be on our way. The reality of the long trip was soon realised with Mia being sick before we reached Auckland. The second leg of the trip was even worse with both Mia and Abbey being sick several times on the plane and also inside the terminal at LA. Luckily Flynn was excellent and slept much of the way. Things are bound to get better....surely!!!
