Off to New Zealand
Flying out this evening with Singapore Airlines, arriving in Christchurch on Tuesday morning, which seems like a long time to be on planes. I'm hoping there will be some good films to watch, because I find it difficult to work on long haul flights. It's also kind of tricky using a laptop in economy class, because there just isn't the room to open the screen out. That reminds me - I'm also hoping that the person in front of me isn't one of those idiots who insists on reclining their seat to the maximum extent straight away.
First stop is Dunedin for a few days, where I'll be at the University editing a scientific conference on gene-environment interactions. Then it's wine all the way: Marlborough, Hawkes Bay, Gisborne and Wairapa. A bit of a lightning tour, but I'm looking forward to it very much.
