    In Transit

    September 20, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    We set out on the next part of our journey. Off to New Zealand! We would have two layovers, flying from Calgary, to Los Angeles and via Brisbane to Auckland, taking 30 hours and 20 min, technically arriving 2 days later. We were packed and ready to go!

    In Calgary, Jenna found charging bikes. Missing Holland, she couldn't resist hopping on and charging her e-reader ;) Flying over California, we got some nice views of the mountains.

    When we got to LA, we had to go to the desk to print off our boarding passes for the last leg, Brisbane to Auckland. When we got there, however, we were told we couldn't board that last flight. We had requested working visas for NZ last minute (to make up some of the money lost when our car was broken into). Although we would have been fine to enter as tourists without a visa, having applied for work visas, we had to wait for their decision! Luckily, they were able to get us tourist visas for Australia. We could still get on our flight to Brisbane, and at least be a step (or 11,500 km) closer to our destination.
