Pascal and the chocolate factory
Tuesday was my first day with my new customer : Cadbury. We left Melbourne on Tuesday evening and the with the time difference we reached our hotel in Auckland, NZ at 2:00 am. The night was short…and the day ahead was going to be long. We left the hotel and made our way to Avondale to visit the Cadbury factory. We spent the better part of the day there touring the factory and getting to meet the people we will be working with. It was then time to hit the road again as we headed towards the airport to catch the plane that would get us to our next destination: Duniden (via Christchurch). We made it in Duniden at around 9:00pm. The next one and a half days were spent in Duniden again visiting another Cadbury factory and meeting the local staff there. By Friday noon, it was time to start the homecoming trip to Melbourne (via Wellington).
The itinerary: Melbourne – Auckland – Christchurch – Duniden – Wellington – Melbourne.
