Our flight left Auckland in the evening. We had some time to kill during the day so we played a round of mini golf near the airport. It had an awesome pirate theme! Sadly it was raining off and on so we had to hide out at one of the holes. (A cave). Daryl tried to get redemption after losing in Naniomo after Nick & Emily’s wedding but sadly Amy won again.
We then dropped the car off and grabbed a shuttle to the airport. We spent hours in the airport shops getting all of our last minutes gifts and souvenirs. We went back to one store 4 times before finally making a decision on a glass sculpture.
The 12 hour flight to San Francisco was uneventful and we both managed to get some sleep.
Some more shopping took place during our 5 hour layover. One last short (in comparison) 3 hour flight back and we touched down at YVR.
All in all an amazing trip that had countless experiences and memories that we will both never forget. Already looking forward to the next one…. eventually.
Until next time…
