In January, (about two weeks after I wrote my post about booking flight) Emirates announced that they would start offering a non-stop flight between Auckland and Dubai. The flight from Auckland to Dubai, at 17 hours, 15 minutes would be the longest flight in the world (until the airline begins offering it’s 17 hour, 35 minute flights to Panama towards the end of March.. which will then eventually be eclipsed by Qatar’s propose 18 hour flight between Doha and Auckland).
I’ve lived in Auckland my entire life – all 26 years of it, and it’s safe to say I love this city.
My friend from Perth was on a cruise that was docking in Auckland for a day and I caught up with her to show her some of the sites. It was a great opportunity to be a tourist in my own city and to try out my new Sony Action Cam (HDR-AS20) that I plan to take to Europe!
So I am currently sitting at Auckland Airport at our departure gate waiting to board our flight for the first leg of our long journey to New York! Our flight has been delayed by 30 minutes so it’s a bit longer that we have to wait.. Approximately 2 hours until we can board. At least we get priority boarding being on extra comfort.
The day is finally here! I’m currently sitting at Auckland Airport waiting for my flight in a few hours. It’s raining and only 12 degrees in Auckland and in less than 24 hours I’ll be in sunshine and 28 degree heat in Los Angeles!!
I will try and keep the blog updated as much as I can and post some photos as well.
See you soon America!!
