#Storm

It wasn’t too late in the new year to get our very first storm with warnings from Met Services to stay home. It was pouring for two days making things standstill, and so did the plan for rest of 2017 shut down holidays.

Good thing about the rains is that they make hot meals taste much better and pakodas with tea are to die for at such times.

Loving staying put in Koru Lounge on a day when flight is delayed by more than an hour @Wellington International Airport

Due to the heavy rains in Auckland, the plane we are supposed to board is running late from Auckland. Could not be more thankful to the timely arrival of gold airpoints card helping us enjoy this time. It is the second time in this year at this airport that the flight is delayed by more than an hour.

Last time it was because of the strong Southerly Winds in Wellington and that time also, Koru Lounge had come to the rescue – only time I used silver airpoints card voucher.

#Spring #NewZealand #September2017

The spring in September month is nothing more than hide and seek between winter and summer or should I say, rain and sun.

It starts from the beginning of September when you go through a full week of rain followed by a sunny week, then next 1-2 weeks with rainy weekdays and sunny weekends.

By the time month is about to end, sunny days start increasing with fewer rainy days in every week and finally, October starts with weeks filled with equal proportion of sunny, cloudy and rainy days in every week indicating that summer is just around the corner.

– Based on my observations including travel between Auckland and Wellington

#SoutherlyWinds

What an adventurous and tiring ride it was from Wellington on one of the worst days to fly in New Zealand. All flights were either delayed or cancelled due to stormy weather. Mine was delayed at multiple times, first by 30 minutes, then by 50 minutes, then by 70 minutes and finally by 90 minutes which meant total wait of almost 2.5 hours at the airport.
After landing @Auckland Airport at 7.30 PM, the plane was stalled for exactly 1 hour before we got the air bridge and finally made it to home at 9.30 PM in a freezing weather.
