Vancouver flight to Auckland New Zealand

The flight to New Zealand on Air New Zealand was a good choice. This is a non stop flight & the seats were quite comfortable. Food was passable but I did bring a few of my own favourites to nibble on the was so I was fine. Leaving @ 19:00 was perfect as I watched a movie read a book & dozed off. The 14 hour flight was only 13.5 hours as we had a strong tail wind so that was good. I will take a few days to reset my personal time clock then get my wish list of taking in The Bay of Islands, kayaking in Able Tassman Park & a stay in Wellington,Christchurch & Nelson arranged. So far I am off to a good start.
