Alfred Lord Tennyson in Auckland, New Zealand

What better way to spend a few minutes at an airport than make a blog post? Interesting to see this quotation from Tennyson at Auckland Airport by the check-in, on this, our final day in New Zealand, where the weather has been superb. I believe it's far less than superb in the UK. Ah well, briefly on for overnight in Singapore first though.
The quotation:
'For I dipt in to the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be;
Saw the heavens fill with commerce,
Argosies of magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight,
dropping down with
costly bales'
'From "Locksley Hall
Alfred Lord Tennyson
