    Pre-Flight Saturday

    September 23, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Nice and lazy day today.

    To start a sneaky gym session followed by an excellent brunch with Lorri, Amy and G'ma at Ray's Place.

    Rachel and Adrian left Nic and I in the city. A lovely manicure and pedicure later, we were on our way to the airport. Thank god we utilised online check in facilities, Etihad lines were basically out the door. Our "short" line took about 40 minutes to get our bags checked. A quick meal, a final boarding call and we're walking down the gangway in the nick of time.

    Travel advice learnt today. Do not put your dark passport on the dark seat of the plane which has dark carpet. Your passport can and does fall down the side of the seat inducing a state of panic. Always, take the time to stow that baby safely away.

    Now to get through this 14 hour flight.
