Well I leave the uk on sunday for 3.5 weeks in NZ, and have a few, albeit daft, last minute questions!
1) immigration/customs - is this rather like oz where you have to declare pretty much anything to be safe? I'll be bringing enough pain killers with me for the trip - bad fracture and complications of ankle at christmas (was hoping to be all fixed by now, but not quite). I assume these need to be declared, do I also need a letter from dr or are the meds acceptable in their original container with my name/pharmacy details on?
same goes for food - meeting up with an old colleague and he's missing a few things from here, namely of the chocolate varierty ...
2) Tipping - I understand that this is not typical? I'll be having assistance in the airport due to my hindered walking ability, and I expect I shall have to ask someone to take my bags to my room when i get to auckland too - mate not arriving for a couple of days after me - staying in City Life. Would be correct/incorrect to tip someone who did this? And if its correct, what sort of amount? - dont want to do the wrong thing either way!
3) Really daft question now! - women eating on their own in the evenings - good or bad? I'm used to eating in the hotel on my own when i'm away for business, but not really used to venturing into town for this. In some places i've been its really not the "done" thing, or isn't the safest of things. Any opinions?!
Told you they were daft! Thanks, now, back to hunting for my gloves!!
