    Enjoy, and safe travels. I loved Austrailia last year. Only wish I had taken more time to go to NZ.

    Hey John,

    I am sure you already have a touring plan but let me know if you need suggestions. I have spent a lot of time in NZ and Australia. Check out the huge Seafood Market in Sydney. You can buy wine and assorted cooked seafood and sit by the water and enjoy lunch. They have some crazy stuff there. Enjoy. Let me know if you are going to be near Queenstown NZ. Have some really cool friends that own a small inn called Pencarrow. They know how to do things right. kr

    ANZ has a hard 7kg limit on cabin baggage even on the 777-300ER. Nice ride by the way!

    Opera House was a great Tour as was the restuarants lining the water. Nice to see the Hyatt was reopened it just finished a major redo and was closed when I was there. I did like that part of town and also did the bridge walk. that was alot of fun.

    I may miss the walk as the bridge is closed in preparation for the fireworks installation. The new Park Hyatt is fabulous! NYE on the roof with the big camera!
