Just one day in February, I was sitting idle in office and was browsing about where can I go to fulfill my gumakkad appetite. I just browsed through Yatra for Air tickets to Auckland (as it was in my wish list since long) and got a very good deal for return tickets for 3 of us. The very evening of 13th Feb, asked my wife if she want to visit New Zealand. Once got s nod from her checked with parents that we are getting a good deal for New Zealand Air tickets for June last week, Dad gave go ahead straight away and with in next 30 mins tickets were booked, without any further plan and Visa in hand.

After the tickets were booked, next morning called my younger brother in New Zealand that we have booked our tickets for June and will start our Visa processing. Applied for our New Zealand Visa online and submitted the papers at TT SERVICES and received our Visa in March. Here we are ready for New Zealand.

But wait, where is itinerary?

This time we did not had any Itinerary in place and completely put our plan on my brother

Preps for D day started...So let us prepare for our journey to take you guys along. In the mean time enjoy some teasers from our Mobile Cameras:

ours was a 15 days trip starting 14th Jun Friday from Delhi and reaching 29th Jun Saturday back in Delhi. We took China Southern as our flight carrier for Del-Auckland-Del. Below are our flight details:

Flight Carrier - China Southern
Total Fare - Rs 1,10,000/-
Total Time : Delhi-Auckland is 24 hours with 7 hours layover in Guangzhou, China and
Auckland - Delhi is 18 hours with 1.5 hours layover in Guangzhou, China

As said above, we were heavily dependent on my younger brother, hence there were no planning from our side and therefore no itinerary was prepared to roam around New Zealand. But I was sure that we gonna cover only Northern Island of New Zealand. hence it helped us and my brother to chalk out the plan during our visit.

I will try to cover our journey in this T-Log day wise and will skip those days when we were at home.

Day 0-1 The day to board our flight from Delhi and 7 hours at Guangzhou Airport

After a long day in office, we got free at 5PM and came home. The good thing was, we did our packing in bits and pieces during last week, therefore we were not worried about to forgot anything at home.

there was some weird thing with China Southern, they won't allow you to do online check-in, if you have any child passenger travelling with you. therefore we left early at 5:30 PM for our mid night flight just to get preferred seats. Post check in, we completed the immigration formalities.there were no photos of airport as we directly settled ourselves in lounge and took rest for the long journey ahead.

Oh I forgot to introduce my travel partners:

My wife and My son:

We reached Guangzhou at 7:00 AM (China time) and again visited lounge for freshening up ourselves and had mild breakfast and left the lounge just before our flight. Few clicks at the airport:

Very nice Photos. Waiting for more. I have one doubt. Is the Fare is 11000/- or 110000/-? And is it for oneway for 3 persons or to & fro for 3?
