My jet set lifestyle

Early tomorrow morning (Friday) I am bravely boarding a teensy plane for a quick hop across to Great Barrier island in the outer Hauraki Gulf for an extended weekend break.  I’m nervous about the little plane but I hear that we fly at only about 1000 metres above sea level which I guess means that at least there isn’t too far to fall if the thing gets blown out of the sky.

I am going to hang out with a old friend in a holiday home owned by another friend. We’re not due back in Auckland until Monday or Tuesday but don’t worry, at that stage I will no doubt compulsively over share the weekends events and maybe even some pics.

You may recall my post in May after my last jaunt around the gulf. At that stage a  couple of girlfriends and I spent a fabulous weekend on Waiheke Island. Waiheke is the largest island in the archipelago you can see above in the inner gulf close to Auckland city.

Anyway got to sign off now and publish this. I still haven’t packed so I better get a move on. Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. Have a great trip, Lou. It sounds lovely.

  2. Don't worry about the plane. Small planes are actually able to glide a long way if need be. In terms of safety, I much prefer small planes.

    Looking forward to photos. Have a great trip.

  3. Have a blast. We look forward to the details.

  4. I am totally jealous. Don't worry about the little plane - I was surprised with one from Toronto to New York several years ago and was pleasantly surprised how neat it was. Only 12 seats and you could see through the pilots front window.

    Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!!

  5. Lou, I hope you have an awesome time!

  6. Don't think about a thing...just let the mind wander and re-lax! That's what holidays are for. They don't come around often enough!


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
