Day 17 - Airports

What a day of hurry up and rush! We had a few hours between our hotel check-out time and our flight so we went back to see the Tondoon Botanic Gardens, because it was on the way to the airport and this time my dad was able to join us. It's such a beautiful and relaxing place I could hung up a hammock and stay there all day. We also took a few fun pictures around the area again and this time we even got a "Kangaroo Crossing" sign to show everyone at home that this is a real thing around here.

Traveling from Australia to New Zealand with the out break of swine flu made it an interesting and long process. We had to fill out more forms and answer more questions than another time traveling. Coming through customs, there was a huge area set aside for quarantine and most of it was filled. I was very happy to know that we made it through.

Well, it's 1:30 AM and we're finally here in New Zealand. I think I'm going to go celebrate by sleeping in as late as possible.
