Two days of refreshing a page that's been hammered with traffic, we secured our spots. Have 48 hours to book flights.

Ughh I feel bad for some folks that are in the UK with a 12-13 hour time difference. The site really sucks and they only release openings a month or two at a time, which get scooped up in a matter of a half an hour.

So we board flight in calgary 11am, 4hr flight to Toronto with 6 hour layover. 14hr flight to Dubai with an overnight stay, then 19hr flight to auckland with a stop in Kuala Lumpur. 90 minutes can't unboard. When we get to Auckland there is a chance that we may have to bus almost 3 hours to an isolation site in Rotorua.

Remember that groceries are on the expensive side in New Zealand.

You probably know of the supermarket chain Pak N Save....When my brother went there last year when he went to NZ for my wedding he called it Pak N Get-fucked-up-the-arse cos of how expensive it was.

Our neighbours are part of the UK team that competed for the Americas Cup (yachting for those that don't know).
The whole team got bumped to Rotorua on arrival in the country.

Flick me your details when you get here.

I'll take you for a beer post-isolation if you're in Auckland.

If we get sent to Rotorua I'll just give up on life completely

Fucking Ardern.

Now we're going to have my wife's family facetime us every weekend with the old "Sooooo when are you both coming to visit us???"

How about when I don't have to sell my kidney when I'm there just so I can buy a carton of milk.
