Stage 1 of our plan to rule the world is nearly over. We've just spent four days with Rory's mum soaking up the hottest spring sun I can ever remember. We toured the wineries and stocked up her wine supplies and sampled the food and wine at quite a few cafes and restaurants; quail stuffed with crayfish is now my dream-food!
We fly to Auckland in a couple of hours to catch a direct flight to London. 25 hours in a fucking plane is more than I really want to cope with so we're travelling business class - at least we can be comfortable! We're globe-trotting back home later so that'll be economy.
Can't wait to see grubby ol' London again!
