Lives of the rich and famous

This is a very fine flying machine, let me tell you ...and that whole thing about always expecting the unexpected because that way it’s more likely to happen; here be another most excellent case in point. I’ve always wanted to experience flying in a chopper, but admittedly have never gone out of my way to make it happen. Out of the blue yesterday came an opportunity to fly into the stunning Abel Tasman National Park for free in this magnificent machine. Taking off from a private airport in Mot, I was at Awaroa Lodge in time for breakfast, some golden sand R&R and back in Nelson in time for afternoon jazz with friends. Life is pretty sweet people. And I didn't even have to sleep with anyone :P
