Default PARENTS COMING!

Hi,my parents are coming over next week for a 6 week visit and cant wait!
I have read wiz and tons thread of what they did when they had relatives over and will probably do a few things they done.

Gonna take trips down to Queenstown(also read that thread about the route too!),and other places, really wanted to no whether i need to book motel or hotel before we leave to go anywhere or we could just come across a place to stay.
Thanks

It's great when family come over! I've got the wife's parents flying in next week as well for about the same length of stay. What day do your parents arrive?

Too true!!

How as the Captain of the plane that was following the BA flight into heathrow do you tell the passengers of your plane that you need to abort the landing as the plane in front of you has just crashed?

Not long to wait Helen! According to Lonely Planet places in Queenstown book up and prices rocket during peak summer and ski seasons; recommends booking well in advance. Try www.qac.co.nz Queenstown Accommodation Centre, tel: 03 442 7518, offers range of holiday homesa nd apartments for families/groups, prices from $180 - $850 per week (often minimum stay period).

Or try www.colonialvillage.co.nz, www.chalet.co.nz, www.alexisqueenstown.co.nz, www.novotel.co.nz, www.littleparadise.co.nz (Glenorchy-Queenstown Rd)

Hope this helps!

If the rumours/stories of total power loss/failure are correct then that BA pilot has saved many lives including his passengers,crew and many people living working on the approach.

No doubt the enquiry will find the cause but many are saying it doesn't seem to be pilot related and that he and the flight crew have done a superb job.

You are so lucky to have your parents visit. I would love for mine to come out and see us too. It is hard work to convince them and I hope to succeed one day. Congratulations.

My Mar and Par arrived 4 hrs ago , so by now they are mooching around (getting lost and causing accidents no doubt) Auckland looking for a campsite.

I get to see them next week for the first time in 12 months. Can't wait
