All's well

We made it, and Older Daughter handled both the twelve hour flight and jet lag like a pro. We've been getting up early and going to bed early, but it wasn't like I'd been planning to take her out on the town for some Auckland nightlife, so that's all good.

We've had a whirlwind few days in Auckland (Auckland Museum, art galleries, Kelly Tarlton's, SkyTower, Devonport), and this afternoon we're off to Wellington for the conference. Then, as of 5:00 on Friday, I'm a free woman, with no more paper to even consider (not that I've been thinking about it much at all). I'll try to update as I can, and lots of pictures to come when I'm home. Thanks everyone for the good travel wishes, I'm sure they helped!

Heh! I bet she did better than you on the flight.

Have fun ignoring your paper until you give it. And even more fun afterwards!

Good thing there's a conference so it won't be too much fun! But even that sounds fun.

I'd like an Aussie as a souvenier, if it's not too much trouble. ;)

Take pictures! Lots of pictures of everyone and all the sights. :-)

Wait! You didn't say anything about knitting on the plane. You did manage a few rows of something???
