WordPress is being stubborn this morning, or maybe it’s my computer. I’m too tired to worry much about it though – Hong Kong is only a three hour time difference to Australia but it sure makes a difference. I think it’s because our flight back was overnight and I can’t sleep on planes so I lost that time as well. I’m pretty sure that my time limit when flying is about ten hours so I probably won’t get to England, Europe or America but I’ll get to see a lot of Asia. I don’t have a fear of flying it’s just the extreme boredom that does me in. After about 8 hours I can start to understand why people snap and go crazy and try to open doors and stuff and it’s such an unatural thing to do – fly. Whenever I get up to go to the toilet I look around and think – how weird is this – I’m 10km in the air in a metal capsule with 300 other people and we’re sitting around watching movies and eating packaged food.
So we set off last weekend in a very old dodgy bus and we stopped for a break half way to Sydney and had sandwiches and champagne to start off the trip.
There was also a fruit seller who can’t spell and an ambulance waiting bay there.
We had a couple of hours to spare at the airport so had a drink then a roam about. I don’t know why they make all the kangaroo statues in Australia so damn freaky. This guy reminded me that I have to go back and take some photos of my shopping mall christmas kangaroo at night.
I don’t know that I’d call the meals gourmet but they weren’t bad. I’d put in an order for a vegetarian meal but they gave me vegan which didn’t matter but I could have done with some butter on my dry rolls. On the way over I had a spinach gnocchi and on the way back I had a zucchini pasta which was really pretty nice.
First time flying with Virgin and they weren’t bad, trip back was better than the one over, service wise. But OMG – how hot is it here! It was hot in Hong Kong – even though it is Autumn there we were still sweating like mad due to the humid days but stepping off the place here was nasty, Hello summer!
