Due to my major flight stuff up I ended up spending an extra day in NZ and then flying through Melbourne. The ordeal cost me $1000 NZD. Quite reasonable you might not think.

I made use of the 15 hours I had in Melbourne and went and visited Karen in St Kilda. We spent the day lazing at the beach in the 36 degree heat.

Leaving Desserts

As I was supposed to be leaving tomorrow I had a bit of a catch up with some friends who weren’t already away on holiday somewhere. There were copious amounts of yummy sugary things.

Of course, seeing has I can’t read it wasn’t actually my last night and instead I spent another day in NZ, paying a mere $1000 for the privilege. Ughh.
