Landing in the past, departing from the future!

13.11.2016 New Zealand / 12.11.2016 Rarotonga – 12,4km


International date line

We left Christchurch with a 11:00 flight to Auckland.

The drop off at ACE was perfect, no problem, fast and the shuttle to the airport last just few minutes.

Arrived in Auckland we decided to send another bag direct to Rarotonga and to leave mine at Ibis hotel, where I will sleep at my return.

In the international you could find the yellow bus that would drop you to the hotels close to the airport for 6NZ$ only. The bus is regular every 30 minutes.

Ibis Hotel is really close to the international and you could even walk 15 minutes (880 m)

Crossing the International Date line, even if it’s an imaginary line on the surface of the earth let you feel really strange…
I will arrive yesterday night and I will live twice the 13th November!
Our new time zone is -23 hours Auckland time, -11 hours Zulu Time

From Christchurch via Auckland to Rarotonga

Ready to go?

Just arrived at Frankfurt airport.

Technology is all over! Self check in, self baggage drop off… I would really wonder why do we need to be so early for the flight, as I spent only 15 minute total with passport and security check!!!

My flight is at 17:15, so still some time remaining to eat and relax….

And then, ready to go!!!

Oceania, I’m coming!!!

In few days I will be in Frankfurt airport ready to leave for my first trip to Oceania.

I will fly via Shanghai to Auckland where I will take another flight to Kerikeri to visit Bay of Island!

I will try to post every day, some information, picture and story.

Follow my dreams!!!
