Mainly about driving to Brisbane, dropping off the Campervan, and then flying from Brisbane to Sydney and Sydney to Auckland, however had a great drink and dinner with Nick Warren and Krissi Teague on the waterfront in Brisbane on Tuesday night, but were too rubbish to take photos (fail), and then lunch in Manly on Wednesday with Alex Johnston (fail again on the photo front).

Sadly for me I had to say goodbye to my fabulous straw hat which has accompanied me on various trips to Budapest, Novi Sad, Croatia, Malawi and Berlin as it was really getting a bit raggedy. Luckily I’d bought a new squashable hat in the fantastic hat shop in Noosa. Nice, but not the same…

Our flight from wet and windy Sydney was delayed by 3 hours which we whiled away in the Qantas lounge with free internet, breakfast and champagne (actually sparkling wine from the Seppeltsfield Winery that we visited in the Barossa valley) so it wasn’t all bad, and then on arrival in Auckland we were met by the lovely Gav, and old friend from Uni days. Dinner and a few glasses of wine soon polished us both off…
