We departed Canberra airport at the ‘crack of dawn’ this morning on our journey to Perth for the Xmas break. Many thanks bro’ for the ride to the airport at such an unsocial hour – and Ali for letting you drive her new car.
We have two golden rules when undertaking air travel:
Rule 1. Never travel in the school holidays and
Rule 2. If you do, always travel business class or at least premium economy.
On our trip to Perth this morning, we broke both of them.
The consequence was that we were surrounded by families with young children. One wee lass who sat directly behind us, screamed from the time of her arrival on the aircraft until the time we got off – 3.75 hours!!! The little thing was still screaming as we exited the plane. We have yet to find a set of earphones that will drown out such noise. The temptation to have wine with our breakfast was almost too much.
However we are now in Perth and received a lovely whanau greeting on our arrival. We are looking forward to spending the next few days socialising with family and friends in Western Australia.
Keep safe and we hope Santa is kind to you all.
