The Robbos have Landed!!

The trip from the other side of the world

sunny 30 °C

We took off rom Brisbane Airport at precisely 12:25pm on Friday, 26 August. Special thanks to Aunty Carol and Grandma for driving us to the airport, calming our nerves, feeding us and seeing us off. The 3 hour flight to Auckland was Giaan's first-ever flight. The flight with Air New Zealand was smooth, the service and food were also excellent. Auckland looked stunning as we flew in with the sun setting over the harbour.
Mum was miffed when her duty-free alcohol was confiscated by NZ Customs. There was heaps of 2011 Rugby World Cup gear all over Auckland airport. Dad was very happy until he saw the prices!
We took off from Auckland at 7:30pm. The city lights looked spectacular and it felt like we were flying on top of the stars. Giaan thought they looked very pretty, too.
Air New Zealand's service again was great and after an 11 hour flight, we landed in Los Angeles. We then caught the Disneyland Express to Anaheim. Our hotel, in which we are sitting blog writing, is across the road from Disneyland and we're going there tomorrow after a good night's sleep...Can't Wait!!

Hi Robbos, pleased to know you've landed safely and were well looked after on the way. How has Disneyland celebrated your first visit? I hope they rolled out the welcome mat. All well on the home front.
Love Nana
