Here we are, it's finally happening. Had an uneventful flight from port to syd. It was too early to check in so it was decided that dee needed to jettison some gear. After many funny looks, hopefully not too many germs from the floor, and a quick trip to auspost dee's bag was approx 3kg lighter. Makes for a happier dee, and an even happier Michelle since she doesn't have to put up with dee's whinging.
Have just searched the airport for ice cream. No joy. They obviously don't know the rule about it not being real holiday unless you have an ice cream everyday. Had to settle for a champagne for me and a Boags for Dee.
Hairy moment at check in. Problem with booking. Hopefully we will be able to make it to Beijing. We do have boarding passes though.
On another note, its also a monumental day as we have just received word that Dr Bob has resigned. Never thought we'd see the day. Shellshocked +++.
Security was also fun. Dee thought she was going to be arrested for having some h20 still in my bottle. Security dude nearly ripped the bottle off the bag. Emptied the bottle and all was well. Once we got through security we gathered up our Nanna trolleys and scooted around. We then discovered the absolute vodka counter, what better way to start a journey to Russia than with a shot of coffee and almond vodka. Apt and delicious.
Anyhoo, best get ready for take off. Adios amigos!
