What a long night! We left Brisbane at 21.00hrs flew in the dark for 13 and a half hours and landed in Dubai at 04.30hrs still in the dark; so much for the longest day, try the longest night!
I managed to fit in two meals, a chicken party pie sometime in the middle of the night (now there is a custom I'd like to see more of "OK it's 01.30 hrs kids! Everyone wake up for your party pie"), two movies and listened to half a dozen music albums (a few of these more than once) and I still got "some" sleep.
When we landed, the plane parked about a 15 min bus trip from the terminal, a bus without seats, I might add, but after 13 ish hours sitting down, who is complaining.
Our transit lounge was as far from our arrival gate as possible and still be in the same terminal. But after 13 ish hours sitting ...
Well St Petersburg is only a 6 and a half hour flight, should be a picnic. I hope they feed us!
PS: you can see Dubai 1 from the airport, wow
