As you might have noticed I have taken a few days off writing my blog. I have had a few full on weeks with work I decided to combine a meeting with a long weekend to meet up with my girlfriend Camille. I think that every country has it highlights and when it comes to New Zealand that has to be the nature and the relaxed attitude.
I departed from sydney on thursday night just to get in to Auckland airport just before midnight. I had booked a room at Sky City Grand Hotel in Auckland and arrived there close to 1 am. As I arrived to my room I realized that I by mistake had been given a smoking room. I always make sure to get a non smoking room as I can’t stand the unhealthy smell of stale cigarettes.I called the reception and the problem was that the hotel was fully booked as the Louis Vuitton yacht race was on the same weekend as well as the celebration of the chinese new year. For a brief second I feared that I would have to stand the awful smell but the hotel was very quick and within minutes I got the keys to the upgraded suite. Thank you very much!
On friday morning it was time to do some work. I went in to see Caroline Barley, Director of Nova Models in Auckland. I had been recommended to see Caroline by my booker Martin De Courtney and I am happy for that recommendation. I got a warm welcome and just as Chadwick Models in Sydney it was a relaxed feel at the agency. After our first meeting I left my portfolio for them to scan my photos and I was ready to get a couple of days of holiday.
I now have Nova Models as my agency in New Zealand. I am excited to see what the future got in storage for me in New Zealand.
