We'd only got just over an hour out of Brisbane when you hear those infamous words, "Sorry to interrupt but do we have any medically trained personnel on board?" It obviously wasn't life threatening because we kept flying and made it to Auckland, but they made everyone wait until they'd offloaded someone from the plane.
I do hope they feel better.
Then we hoofed it to the domestic terminal and checked our bags. Finally in waiting mode, we stopped to enjoy a celebratory drink :D
A quick run into Rotorua via taxi and we'd arrived at the Novotel. It's a really nice little hotel, with views of the lake and right by Eat Street. It was about 6pm and we just wanted dinner and to collapse, so we headed out after offloading our bags.
The next morning was up and at it, as we had a whole day of Kristen Lamb talking. Best of all, Mr Nix was invited to accept the Maori Blessing - such an honour! Now, I'll upload pics from day one and the cocktail party where Admiral Imogene Nix came out to play!
Tomorrow, I'll share hubs pics of Rotorua with you :)
