It's Paraire (Friday), which means a few of us will be lucky enough to be go haerenga (travelling) for the weekend.
Whether you're off to Tāhuna (Queenstown), Ahuriri (Napier), Ōtautahi (Christchurch) or Ōtepoti (Dunedin), your journey is likely to begin at the whare waka rererangi (airport).
Once you've checked in your haringa (suitcase) at the whare waka rererangi and taken your tūru (seat) on the waka rererangi, it's time for the all important safety briefing.
The Captain has turned on the waitohu tātua (seatbelt sign).
If you haven’t already done so, please stow your haringa underneath the tūru in front of you or in an overhead bin.
Please take your tūru and fasten your tātua.
If you are seated next to a putanga (exit), please read the special instruction card located by your tūru.
We remind you that this flight is auahi kore, smoke free.
E rua ngā wharepaku - there are two toilets on this waka rererangi, he wharepaku ki mua, he wharepaku ki muri anō hoki, one toilet at the back, one toilet at the front.
Now that you're fully briefed on safety, it's time to relax.
Enjoy your weekend, and may you come back with plenty of maumaharatanga pai (happy memories).
