Ben comes to Oz!
I had to get up at 4.30am this morning to catch my flight to Perth. Agnelle and the girls dropped me to the airport and we said our goodbyes, and then because it was a domestic flight I was through to the gate and on the plane within half an hour. I had to change planes in Brisbane, and I arrived in Perth at about 12pm.
The airport I came into was the domestic one, so I had to get a taxi to the international terminal (even though it was just across the runway!) to meet Ben from his flight when he arrived a couple of hours later. It was fun watching people arrive while I was waiting! Ben finally got to Perth, after having to spend the night in Singapore, and it was so good to see him, although I felt a bit too much like a backpacker when I saw his suitcase! We got a taxi to Perth city, where we checked into Aarons hotel, a bit of a change from hostels. The hotel was right by the Swan River, so we had a wander along it, and then went for dinner in Northbridge - I had my first nice bottle of rosé in ages and Snapper for dinner, and Ben had kangaroo steak, which was apparently amazing!
