It was a day with tears at every turn of the road. I knew it would be sad to take my leave and I was right. I won't write much about it now as I could burst into tears again :-(
It was an uneventful flight from Wellington to Auckland. I'm sitting in the departure lounge in Auck right now, it is about an hour till my flight (the long, long flight). It was neat taking off in Wellington - the plane taxied right along the road, and I noticed the flight tower in the hills surrounded by houses! I think I got a photo of that.
I feel exhausted, so I won't write much now, I'll save that for the long, boring flight.
