Another Idiot Abroad
28th Feb 2013 - New Zealand
Half way home.....

Was up in good time to check out and get a bus from outside the hotel to the city centre. Enjoyed one last cooked breakfast before getting the Airport bus.  Another trouble free journey; the beauty of travelling in New Zealand is that traffic congestion just isn't an issue.  

Here I am again at half way house, or Hong Kong airport as it's also sometimes known. Just touched down after what seemed like the longest flight ever. Absolutely cream crackered. Got away with no jet lag going out but don't think I'm going to be as lucky this time.

A word to the wise; if you ever fly Cathay Pacific, pack a lunch. The food is shocking. I didn't see anyone eat more than half their meals and most barely touched them. Who actually eats pumpkin for heaven's sake? Glad to have my sarnies and there was some serious food envy pointed in my direction. Will have to stock up again now for the last leg.

Was shocked at the news yesterday that while I was admiring the sharks at the Sea World centre, a man was attacked and killed by a shark at one of the beaches nearby. Very sad news and extremely rare. In fact, statistically you're more likely to be killed being crushed by a vending machine. Survivors of vending machine attacks don't tend to boast about their scars though.

Now looking for some food as I've got a four hour wait for my last flight and it looks like it's gonna have to be the golden arches I'm afraid. Just scouted out Popeyes chicken and didn't recognise the shapes of any of the pieces they're offering. I've come this far without getting the squits so I'm not going to take any risks now.

Wish I was in my bed now.....
