On My Way!!!

 I cant believe its actually happening.This is my first international flight since 2002 when i arrived in New Zealand with my family.
Last time i was on airplane was in 2009 when i was on my way back from the south island in new zealand after we just finished filming Malcolm Law successful adventurous and phenomenal fundraiser 7in7 Challenge where he ran the seven great walks of New Zealand in 7 consecutive days 361km all together.
So i am about to board the aircraft and i forgot that i have survival tools in my hand luggage.Again the last time i traveled before 2009 was in 2002 as i mentioned above.So i completely forgot about the whole security thing and i got stopped by the security search team while my back is passing the X-Ray and they started pulling out items/tools i had from my hand luggage and i counted 12 of them so it was a bit embarrassing and funny to the rest of the cue seeing a little eastern european looking guy getting his bag presenting quite a few tools. Since we were going to the bushes and all great walks are quite remote i thought i will get all tools i need to get by just like Bear Grills from Man VS Wild only way worse prepared version of that.haha

So this time no problems and only laptop and some usb sticks and cables in my hand luggage with my passport and boarding pass.

Auckland Airport 14th May 2012

Checking In Auckland Airport 14th of May 2012

I am now at Singapore Airport waiting for my next flight to Paris.Here is 20:07pm Local time which is quite late in New Zealand.My next flight is in 23:00pm Local Singapore time so i have few hours to kill.I am quite tired after 10.5 hour flight and sleepless night before from excitement.

I have free internet here at the singapore airport for 4 hours so thats awesome.Also it was handy to have international power adapter so i can charge my laptop.

I have cut 90% of my 45sec showreel while flying from Auckland to Singapore which i will present as part of my pitch for Le Pitch workshop on my schedule while i am at Cannes.So on the next flight or even before then i will try to finish off the 45sec showreel and have some sleep if possible.

I am off to Cannes

Will keep you posted.

Thank you
