On the Way to a New Adventure



9 to 12 December, 2011 – Auckland (New Zealand), Los Angeles (USA)

So, we found this cheap fare to get us across the Pacific, from Auckland to L.A. So, all we have to do is tag on a Melbourne-Auckland flight, and from L.A, some flights through the key places we want to get to in South America... So the total price is still not bad, but we have something like 16 flights on our itinerary, now.

So, friends and family catch ups are in order. Can't afford to have our connections too tight, now, just in case.

So, first to Auckland.

Great to catch up with friend, formerly of Melbourne.


And then, it was on to Los Angeles. Very good friend, Adam, who we have now met up with on five different ocassions.

No, this is not Adam's house, but is not far from where he lives. This house is in a street where all but 2 or 3 have gone close to this crazy with Christmas decorations.

It was raining. So breakfast burritos at the beach was turned in to breakfast burritos "eat-in".

Now we know why the weather has been so crap in Melbourne recently - the Americans have come and stolen our sunshine for their shampoo!
