Auckland

In this corner, weighing in at 28.5 lbs

imageMy wardrobe for the next few months.┬áIn the other corner, Rose’s smaller pack, coming in at an impressive 35 lbs.

While she’s got a reasonable stash of moisturizers, a hair dryer and other “I look 28 years old” products, she’s also the anointed drug mule – carrying our pharmacy of drugs and remedies.

Yes, I know. Why am I, the bigger person carrying less weight? Unfortunately, it’s just how it rang in at the counter.

But don’t worry, I will trade packs soon enough, and share in the role of drug donkey.

Now we’re off to Vancouver, then a short 16-hour hop over to Auckland.

Wheeeeeeeee.
