Oh, I've heard of those. I'll look up some good microstates later. We really need to visit some of them.

God, it's such a funny airport.

Wellington
Auckland






(daylight)










Christchurch


Is how i'd rate the domestic airports in NZ. Auckland International is amazing once you get through customs.

My travel agent went to some pains to make sure I didn't have to travel through LAX... It sounds painful.

I'd bought a bag of those mini Reese's peanut butter cups ( ) in Chicago, and had managed not to eat them in Hawaii (we didn't have the time!)... they didn't survive the layover in Auckland airport.
I still have half the litre of kahlua I got at the duty-free shop...
reese's pieces are like my favorite candy ever.

i hate not being 21 yet, ever since the liquid restriction i'd get busted if i tried to sneak liquor into the country.

Next time i travel to the US i'm going to do everything i can to get there through Vancouver, thanks to Air NZ flying there almost daily now.

I was only 9, but i don't recall LAX being too bad.

EVEN NELSON AIRPORT LEAVES CHRISTCHURCH FOR DEAD. It's so fucking sad. Auckland International isn't bad but I prefer Wellington, truth be told. I guess because it's smaller and I find that more comfortable.

Same here ... mine deliberately routed me through San Francisco because LAX is such a shithole by the sounds of things.

I was in the UK for most of August last year... after that I did two weeks in various bits of the USA (Atlanta, Chicago, Hawaii) before coming home.

It was awesome. I want more.
