The World’s Most Expensive Magazine?

Once at the Auckland airport, I had some time to kill, and leftover currency to spend. I must admit, I was shocked at how expensive some of the typical airport items were! I went for a bottle of water for $5.12 NZD ($4.03 USD), which seems astronomical. But the real shocker was how expensive all the magazines were!

Would you spend $21.00 NZD ($16.50 USD) on a magazine?! Luckily I had plenty of reading material of my own to keep me occupied during my flight, so I didn’t have to break the bank!

Upon reaching Melbourne, and exiting the gates, I saw two of my favorite people! My cousin Kish, who came to pick me up, Β as well as my cousin Ahil from Sydney.

Turns out he was in town for Β short business trip, and thought he’d try to catch me before his flight. It was a great surprise, and a great way to kick off my time in Australia!
