I recently had the opportunity to do a conference presentation in Auckland for work and take a vacation stopover in Sydney on the way back. On the way there a looong plane change in Hong Kong allowed me to do some sightseeing there, too.
Spending 9+11hrs in economy class – and then repeating the drill 10 days later – is never exactly a lot of fun. But when the destination is New Zealand and Australia, you can somehow accept that it takes a small sacrifice to get there 🙂 And it’s always worth it.
In other news, it again dawned on me the other day that I should focus more in this blog. Too often I give in to the temptation to write about a bunch of stuff in a single post – and as we know, when you say everything, you say nothing. So from now on, I’ll try to have a single – seriously like one (or two. Three max.) – point in any one blog post. That may mean shorter posts but that’s probably good.
In that spirit, the point of this post is to advertise the photos from the aforementioned trip. The photos are in their separate galleries, so click on the below images to see the gallery for the city in question:
As far as the trip itself is concerned, it was a lot of fun. So am I glad to be back?
To my family? Yes.
To Finland? Hell no. More on that later.
