Cyclone Wilma - we thank you

For avoiding Samoa and being no more than an inconvenience

However, you did make our journey to NZ a little more stressful! We were delayed leaving Samoa due to strong winds preventing take off. Then we had to fly for an extra hour around the storm. And all we’re doing is clock watching as we only had 2 hours at Auckland for our connection to Christchurch. We barged our way off the plane in Auckland, were the first to Immigration. Luckily our bags came through within the first 20 so we were quickly through Customs and after a furious 10 min walk to the Domestic terminal made our connection with about 10 mins to spare. And during the flight to NZ we crossed the date line so we’re not quite sure if it’s today, yesterday or tomorrow right now!
