... was up we flew back to Sydney for a couple of days to sort ourselves out before New Zealand!! We had to send massive boxes back home, because we bought so much going up the Coast...

A plane from Shanghai had landed just before us so there were about 800 Chinese in line at immigration. There was only one person in front of us in our line. We went to collect our baggage.
