Come with me, I said,
That was a voice inside my head,
Be you alive or be you dead?
Many bad thoughts,
My mind is fed!
Come with me, It did say,
I do things in a different way,
Can't tell the difference between night and day!
These are the mental games I play,
I wouldn't have it,
Any other way!
Come with me, you are nearly dead,
From listening to what's going through your head!
I laugh at you laying in you bed,
Taking in everything from A to Zed,
You should have listened,
Whitesnakes do it better ........... When you're not listening!

Once upon a time,
Is a program on TV,
Is a program on TV,
Or is it about the time?
You turned your back on me!
Once upon a time,
A simple set of words,
Leading to a story,
That's really quiet absurd!
Yes, once upon a time,
Life was easy going,
My, that time has changed,
Only stress is what is showing.
But, once upon a time,
In a time not far away,
We would share and we would care,
Each and every day!
Now our lives are different
Life has changed but is it' such a crime,
Do we think our life was better?
Whitesnakes do it better ..... Not once but all the time!

Well we are home safe and sound although KB is very tired.
The honeymoon was fantastic and Adelaide put on some brilliant weather. It only rained for 1 day and even then it didn't put a damper on things.
If I have anything to complain about it is Adelaide International Airport!
Those that run it should be taken out the back and shot. Coming in was not to bad although there was very little signage to tell you anything.
Had it not been that I had lived here and been to the airport before it could have been worse. Even I was disappointed with the way the place was set out. I can only assume there is work being done but once more I repeat there was no information. as for the help desk which was hidden in some obscure place no one was there. Not even a sign saying be back in 10mins!
Having told KB what a wonderful place Adelaide was, her first experience was to see a line of people waiting for a taxi, we counted 80 people before we decided to catch the bus. As for signage to say where the taxi stand was, nope didn't see a single thing. We had to use our eyes. Even looking for some airport personal to ask nope they were all on a tea-break!
Now we can and did forgive the taxi stand which by the way was approximately 200m from the Airport on the ground floor not the upper deck which we went to first because that's where you caught a taxi when I was last here. Once more no signage to say where the stand had gone!
It was coming home we encountered the flaws that firmly lay at the feet of those in control of Adelaide airport.
Checking in to Air New Zealand. We looked at the big board that had departures and saw nothing for Auckland or Air New Zealand.
Big signs for Qantas, Virgin, Cathay and REX.
REX are you serious? Air New Zealand, none ........... Oh unless you go outside on the upper deck which is being renovated or upgrade or something. We did see a lot of people out there in hi-viz vests wandering around aimlessly.
Back to the ground floor to the help desk where once more we found it unattended. A few minutes standing there like lost souls a woman did appear and happily told us the Air New Zealand check in was up stairs on the left. Was that my left or hers? Hers.
Back up stairs to her left nothing. We checked the big board again.still nothing.
We start slowly walking to the left or southern side of the check in area watching some people checking in at 28-32 check in desks ..... well what do you know Air New Zealand check in desks. We check in and move on through.
We head through customs and through duty free and head to Gate 20 which you can not get to because the doors are locked. It isn't like anyone is cleaning the place and once more there is no signage to even give a brief "This door will be open at whatever" Still no one to ask for help or answer any questions.
There are no clocks on the walls so one can check the time. There is only 1 toilet that is quite a walk from gate 20.
If you are that tight to have only one toilet for international passengers put it in the middle.
I feel really sorry for people who haven't been here before. Signage is poor and customer service on the floor none existent. You shouldn't run an airport like that!
The staff we did deal with at check in, customs and boarding were outstanding.
Adelaide is still a wonderful city. There are just certain places that need to get their act together and the airport is one. It is the first face people see as visitors and on this occasion it was not pretty.
As soon as we arrived and disembarked at Auckland Airport we just started looking around when an airport staff member asked if we required assistance. A polite "No thank you" with a smile.
A nudge from KB. "I told you Auckland was better than Adelaide!" just summed it all up.
Whitesnakes do it better ........... When ya know what I'm saying!

Looking back, the time has flown. There was so much we were going to do but never did. Maybe next time.
The motel was just right for what we wanted and being so close to everything just made the whole experience even better. I have loved every minute here with KB, it has been fantastic.
Today we had a final catch up with Tarlee and Bianca. We took them out to lunch at the Jetty Hotel where Tarlee ordered chicken schnitzel and Diane sauce, KB ordered roast beef, I had a dozen oysters and Bianca shared Tarlees lunch. We had a few drinks and then went for a walk up Jetty Road before heading back to the motel where they bid us farewell.
KB and I had the rest of the afternoon to relax and pack.
Isaac and Kirsten came by bringing pizza with them for tea.
It was really nice to see them and enjoy the pizza,a few drinks and more than a few laughs.
All too soon they left.
KB and I are tired and looking forward to getting home. KB is especially looking forward to getting Coco home. I will miss those that have shared special moments with us.
It is time to go home. So I had better get to bed, I have a plane to catch!
Take care and stay happy.

Whitesnakes do it better ............. when ya heading home!

Well you do have to give credit where credit is due, Kirsten and Isaac sure know how to put on a BBQ spread even when the weather is wet, wild and windy. It was good to catch up with some more of the family and enjoy watching the footy and having a jam session with my brother.
All in all an excellent day!

Could it be magic?
Or a kind of hallucination,
A dream of vast proportions,
Maybe just, my imagination.
A happy thought brought to life,
A wishing star just pass the moon,
Or could it be KB and Whitesnake,
Just on their honeymoon?
Whitesnakes do it better ........... for Carry On Tuesday
