Well I guess this is the final official “Road Trip” blog post, as we’re no longer on the road and no longer in the air, we’ve touched down safely in New Zealand and we’re back “home” in Tauranga.
On Monday morning in New York we were sad to say Goodbye to Lance as he headed to Spokane to visit friends, but not so sad to say Goodbye to our hotel in Queens as we headed to JFK airport for our very easy six hour flight to Los Angeles.
Once we got to LAX we had a few hours to wait for our Qantas flight to Auckland, which was fortunate because our flight was cancelled due to the Peru volcanic eruption! Luckily us Kiwis aren’t as scared of a bit of ash as our Aussie mates, so we hitched a ride with Air New Zealand instead, no worries! We even got into Auckland two hours earlier than the Qantas flight and got to catch up with our wonderful Mums who were there to greet us.
I was nervous about being back in Tauranga, as the UK has really become “home” to me over the last two years, but it has truly been lovely to be back. We’ve had a chance to catch up with some friends and family already, check out the town (nothing’s changed) and the weather has even been beautiful.
Nathan and I are already planning our next road trip here in beautiful New Zealand, so although our USA road trip adventure is over, keep an eye out for some more adventures closer to home. Thank you so much to everyone for reading the blog, I really hope you’ve enjoyed it. oxo
