Aussie Update

It was a long flight from LA to Sydney, but we were very lucky because United honored my upgrade request and we got to make the 14 hour flight in business class. Janet had no problem adjusting to the additional level of comfort. She looked like when she used to set herself with pillows and blankets in the back of the van when we used to do long road trips.

After we got to Sydney we had about a 5 hour wait in the airport until our next flight to Brisbane. Then in Brisbane another hour or so wait for the flight to Cairns. We finally arrived at our hotel in Cairns around 5:30 pm Saturday. We enjoyed a nice dinner at a restaurant on the marina boardwalk and then headed to bed early. It had been a long trip.

More updates to follow soon.
