Hi everyone, the time has finally come and I'm currently on route to sydney. Today went really quickly and spent most of the time stressed and excited but here I am and I couldn't be happier. The goodbyes were pretty hard, I have never spent three weeks away from Jackson so it was difficult to say the least seeing him walk out the door this morning, but I'm going to try not think about it too much as I get teary every time I do, I will FaceTime him as much as I can so im hoping that will help. I was lucky enough to have Luke drop me off and stay with me until my flight, passed the time with a local beer and pizza, it was perfect and I don't think he realizes how much I am going to miss him , he has the impression that I will be having way too much fun to think about him but I can guarantee I will have loads of fun and miss him just as much. I hope I don't get too home sick lol.
So I am flying to Sydney with Qantas on a Boeing 737-800. The plane seems fairly dated but has loads of leg room and the plane itself is probably only 20% full so I have the entire row which is awesome, hoping I have this kinda luck on the next leg. I'm sitting in seat 5F and am right up the front which is also another bonus, first off the plane after first class which there is no one in. I haven't flown Qantas since I went to Bali in 2005 and after so many years of budget flying I was excited to have a flight that has in-house entertainment and food. That excitement was short-lived once the food arrived. They served it pretty much as soon as we took off, had a choice of chicken curry or beef stir fry. I went with the beef stir fry. Was totally gross lol it was stewed roast beef in this gravy source that reminded me of cat food, pasta and bok Choy, worst beef stir fry ever, but I managed to eat it all and it came with cheese and biscuits plus bread and chocolate so that was ok. The service has been great though and overall considering I don't enjoy flying I'm actually having a really enjoyable time relaxing, eating and reading. In flight entertainment is the movie the "guilt trip", is not terribly good so far but it is passing the time. Anyway going to get back to it. Will touch base when I get to Sydney :D can't believe the holiday has finally begun.
Love cara 6:30pm. Xoxo
