Experiencing the "Spirit of Australia"
22.09.2008 - 02.10.2008
Evidently I have issues, a nine hour flight (yet only one hours time difference) and how much sleep do I get, errr about an hour, I swear I need Business at least on these long haul flights……
Was really looking forward to seeing Richard, it had been too long.
Hmmph well arriving in Sydney got my goat, albeit we landed ten minutes early then we had to sit to wait for a free gate for about 20 minutes then the pilot evidently cannot park as the seatbelt sign was switched off only for him to announce the plane had to be moved back a foot so everyone had to sit back down and fasten up (and you know the free for all when the seat belt sign is released!) all the while the bloody recorded voice of some Aussie Sheila telling us “you arrre experiencing the spiriiit offfff Austraaaaliaaa” yeah too bleeding right…..
To top it all off it was raining and cold….actual cold in Sydney…….
The tiredness was a blur, lets leave day one.
