WOW!! That was quick!!

Post by Sherz » Fri Dec 17, 2010 1:10 am

I've just experienced some unbelievable German efficiency. A few weeks ago I ordered a Native Instruments product during that 1/2 price sale they a wee while back. I was just wondering yesterday when the package might arrive when I received an email that very same day - a dispatch notice. Well, maybe they've been busy with pre-Xmas orders and it's taken a couple of weeks or so to finally get round to processing my order, dunno - anyway it seems the email was simply a courtesy to let me know the package had just been dispatched and was now on it's way down to my side of the planet. Well, bugger me... 2 hours later I check my letter box and there it was... a package all the way from Germany! :shock: Man THAT was quick!! - Germany to New Zealand in two hours! Fantastic!

even more amazing when one considers that you live in the furthest outpost of civilization in the world. I mean that as a compliment, actually

Actually... I think THE most remote 'civilization' is in fact Perth in Western Australia. 8-)

From what I gather, Goodacre is in NZ right now... I can't imagine what the flight from London to NZ is like

Most of the flights from Europe to the western Pacific go through Asia- Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong etc. The flights from Oz or NZ to Singapore or Honkers aren't so bad- it's the 14 hours from Singapore to London that always ruins me.

OK- so given that people in New Zealand refer to Australia as the West Island, does Ian consider Perth to be in West West Island??? :?

I thought he was heading back home to OZ though I think he has some faimly/relatives here. And in fact speaking of OZ, Rokgeetar (Neil) was heading there too...
