About This Trip
A trip taken by my parents, Ron and Dot - their first time to New Zealand. They visited both islands of New Zealand over a four week trip - driving around and sometimes staying with friends. I will hand over all the descriptions to Mum! -
Ron and I went on a trip to New Zealand in 2003. We left on 21 Feb. and returned on 22 March. We had a great time but started with a very traumatic flight to Auckland. Our friend Leonie Schultz took us to Rockhampton for our flight to Brisbane where we had only 1hr 20mins to change from the Domestic to the International flight. Unfortunately our plane was 1hr late leaving Rocky due to bad weather down south leaving us with only 20mins to make the change. The Qantas employees were very helpful and phoned ahead to say we (and three others) were coming and when we got to the International Airport we were rushed through the boarding process and escorted to the gate. Just as well. We would never have made it otherwise. Consequently we were exhausted by the time we boarded.
