My New Zealand trip is over and I’m as sad as you are about it, so I thought I’d round it up with my favourite Instagram snaps (with links to posts if you’ve missed them!). I’m too kind, really.
After 38 hours of travelling, finally we arrived in Wellington. Thanks Air New Zealand for another great flight and for keeping me entertained with your hilarious safety video.
