Arrived at airport 2 hours before flight due to leave – as planned. Only to find that flight time had been changed and was leaving an hour early – bloody hell!!! Slightly irritating as travel agent hadn’t bothered to contact me to tell me and don’t even want to think about what would have happened if we’d missed it, but it all worked out fine and meant we missed all the check-in queues! Unfortunately meant that K couldn’t get emergency exit seats and we were stuck in middle seats right at back of the plane. But the time passed with various films, listening to music, sleeping etc.
Arrived in Sydney around 7pm. After checking into hotel, went for walk around Darling Harbour. Sydneysiders all wrapped up in thick coats, scarves and gloves. I’ve got one jumper with me and K has none – he’s a bit cold! I did remind him that the temperature is probably equivalent to Scotland in March so given this is midwinter here, it’s not that bad really!
