We are finally here! It sure took a while but the trip went really well! There was a ton of movies that I had not seen so that really helped and I have to say that I think Air New zeeland is a great airline. We were pimping back on the 61st row, thought about upgrading but since I have placed a bid on house in Marbella I thought that I would try to be a little smart with my money and the 2300 pounds for a wide seat did not seem like a smart start to that…
Once we got here though I will admit that t felt a little tough, coming from 30 degrees in Spain to 2 degrees, darkness and poring rain just did not seem that sweet but after some sleep I am feeling much better and ready to go! We are currently waiting for the road to open as an avalanche closed it down but as soon as that opens we are ready to go, super stoked to use these 6 weeks in NZ to get in the best shape of my life. There will be nothing but training, racing, work and burritos for until the 12th of Sept when we fly back!
