Today began very early (5am) so we could get to Auckland airport for our flight to Brisbane, Australia. Air New Zealand have a really funky design for their aircraft. The three and a half hour flight was really good with an excellent in flight media centre.
At Brisbane we picked up our car and headed north along Bruce Highway to Kawana Waters and the Beachsde Resort apartment that our friend Nate of the Sunshine Coast Hockey Association (SCHA) had kindly provided for us, its lovely.
After a quick unpack we headed off to Buderim, home of the SCHA, and caught the end of a local match on their water based AstroTurf. Got chatting to a couple of locals and they were really keen on our Walking Hockey sport.
You know you are in Oz when you drive along Bruce Highway! 🙂
