day 01 in kiwi-land, (0 comments)
at 22:50 ninsti and i started our journey to new zealand at vienna airport. around 24 hours later we arrived in auckland. before we had a flight to dubai, lasting five hours and 40 minutes, then a stop in dubai for about three hours. at 10:15 (local time) we got on the next plane for a nineteen hour flight. additionally we had about one hour delay because of some fuelling troubles (or so the pilot told us). crossing 12 time zones, we finally arrived tomorrow, half a day later, at 13:00 o'clock. welcome to the future. that was pretty strenuous, since we did not get much sleep due to emirate's on-board movies. i had the latest "x-men", "thor", some awesome korean movie, "the greatest movie ever sold", "super 8". ninsti had "kung-fu panda 2", "midnight in paris", "african cats" (meow! great movie), "source code", and "win win". and i'm sure we both forgot some here to list. at about 08:00 o'clock we landed in sydney australia, to have the boeing A380 refuelled and cleaned. so we had to get off, wait another 45 minutes, and then get on again, back to the same seats we had before - only cleaner. the airbus from sydney to auckland was pretty empty, so i occupied four seats in the middle row and took a one hour nap. uuh, that was good.
we both were pretty tired and exhausted, so we got a bus to the center of auckland and headed straight to a YMA hostel we read about in ninsti's lonelyplanet guide. they had a twin room. we were pretty worried we wouldn't get one, because at the airport one guy at the immigration office at first asked me if we're here for the rugby champions league. i said no. he asked me where we are going to stay in auckland. i said we want to stay at a hostel. he asked if we had already booked. i said no. "good luck," he said. uhm... i get worried. "what about the other nights?" he asked. i said we'll get a car. "good luck". grrrr... but, ha! he was wrong. we got our double room at the first hostel we went to. i hope he's also wrong about the car. at our room we had a shower and then, instantly, fell asleep. what a hard day, but hey, we made it to new zealand - wohooo!
