After the check-in we wait for our plane...

Our stay in New Zealand is coming to an end. Fortunately, we were early at the airport, so it was no problem that our check-in took 40min. The friendly gentleman at the counter first wanted us to pay over $4,000 for excess weight. Fortunately, the confusion was cleared up and we were able to check in our tandem for a moderate $250. A little later we saw our luggage ready to be loaded onto the plane.
We are now waiting for our flight to Auckland where we will continue towards Europe at the end of today.
