Flying Wellington-Melbourne

So a nice flight on Air New Zealand. Wellington airport made me laugh. They have a giant Gollum statue crawling over the international terminal to greet visitors. (Pic here) Mad but brilliant. And why shouldn’t they celebrate Peter Jackson and what his team have done for the country.

Perhaps we could add a giant Tony Blair figure to improve the appearance of Terminal 3 at Heathrow?

One slight grumble about Wellington. Having to pay a departure tax in the terminal. I didn’t realise until quite late and almost missed the flight. Why can’t they let airlines include it in the ticket like almost everywhere else?

Arrived in Melbourne to drizzle, but this morning is bright and beautiful. And I like cities by oceans!
