When You're Hot, You're Hot

Adolf and The Cook made it to Adelaide. Well Gawler, actually.

Thirty seven degrees and operating by air card.

We strongly recommend readers avoid the Auckland Airport Holiday Inn. Rated four and a half stars but definitely struggling.

Air New Zealand was excellent. A320 had oodles of leg room and superb music selections.

Four weeks in a serviced apartment and now to find a car and then a house. The housing market is much flatter than that in Auckland so Adolf should be able to drive a hard bargain, what with being cashed up.

Adolf will find some income earning activity. Maybe three or four days per week with no requirement to sing the company song or listen to the corporate horse shit at rah dee rah meetings.

It's been a long three days. Two days of packers and cleaners followed by a day of travel.

Relaxing with a bottle of Aussie Moet (Yellow Glen, The Cook's favorite) and a dash of 18 year old Glen Livet.

Good luck Adolf.

Gawler you'll need it.

pdm said...

Well done Adolf. We haven't been to Adelaide but it will be on the list once we get back to NZ which could be sooner rather than later.

As an aside between you and KG over at Crusader Rabbit you almost have Aussie covered. The sheila with the big backside won't stand a chance.

Congratulations to Adolf and the Cook.
I hope that is Yellowglen Vintage you are serving.
Good look to you both in your new life.
I've just checked out the property scene online and prices seem very reasonable.
You should get something lovely and still have heaps of cash to spare.
Check out those McCracken homes at Freeling.
Enjoy the wine too.
I don't recall much of Gawler when I passed through but nearby Nuriootpa was a nice place and the Seppelt vineyard was lovely too.

All the best

Best of luck in your new venture Adolf. I hope that you and The Cook enjoy your new life, especially with the proximity to the Barossa Valley!

Yes anyone with any sense will eventually move to Oz. Would the last taxpayer to leave please shut the door on the sheeple and all the socialists on the way out.

And the average IQ of both countries increases. Well NZ's one does anyway.

"And the average IQ of both countries increases." A Muldoonism. Despite Key's many qualities, I don't think he has quite Muldooon's, Lange's (dare I say it), et. al., gift for like witticisms and aphorisms.

The last time I flew to Melbourne (Qatar on an A380), I got bumped up to first class. I quite failed to realise that we had landed.

Best wishes.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Thanks for your good wishes, Simon.

Unlike Muldoon and Lange, Key doesn't need wit. In its place, he has ability.

BTW 23 mls of rain in one hour today.

I saw a hell of a lot of New Zealanders on holiday, driving through two feet of water in the outside lane at 100 kph.

Ackers said...

Might I add my congratulations Adolf!

In snowy Canada at the moment but back in Sydney Monday.

Looking forward to your unique insights into Oz politics!

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Why, thank you Ackers. Aussie politics is very simple.

We bushies can put up with all the vicissitudes of life which nature thrusts upon us just so long as there is not a fucking LABOUR gummint in Canberra.

Poor Australia. In under a year it's had floods, cyclones, bush fires, KG moving there, and now you. How many tragic disasters does it have to endure?

You say Key has ability and yet you obviously doubt it as you ran away to Oz :)
