My Longest Day…..
Good Morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.
Today we continue with the life story of The Fridge Magnet as I travel on from Auckland N.Z to Maryland U.S.A…..
So I left you last time (apologies for taking so long to get back here) as I was leaving Auckland, New Zealand.
I recall saying my goodbyes to Jean, John and the children at around mid afternoon when I went through to the departure lounge to catch the first leg of my flight across to Maryland. I think it must have been around 8pm when I took off because it is a 9 hour flight and when I landed in Honolulu it was about 7am of the previous day. Yes, that’s right. The previous day!
All because I went through the international dateline and was able to experience how lonely February 14th can be when you have to see it twice….. 😉
So I arrived in Honolulu and was amazed to find that it was effectively 7 hours before I actually took off from Auckland.
