"Travel and explore and tell the world the glories of a journey..." - John Hope Franklin
Day 1: Friday, 7 November 2014
Route: KL - Auckland - Christchurch
Our MAS flight to Auckland which was supposed to depart at 08:55 was delayed for almost an hour. The 10 hour flight was uneventful, most of the time spent listening to Classic Rock.

Our connecting domestic flight on Air New Zealand to Christchurch was at 06:30 so we had ample time for an early breakfast of pancakes and a cup of hot chocolate at McDonalds. At the arrival lobby, we bought a local Vodafone sim card to be used during our trip. We collected as much brochures and pamphlets about interesting places in south island New Zealand to assist in our routing later.
