Home…

Okay, I’m home, and likely to crash at some point soon! Qantas messed up a couple of A380s worth of people’s flights, and so people were sent off on random flights all around the world in order to get where they needed to be.

In Dubai, waiting at yet another departure gate.

I was meant to fly directly home, but instead ended up on Emirates (whose staff really need to get their act together – the service and the food were appalling), paying unexpected visits to the United Arab Emirates (where airport shopping was done), and to Thailand (where our departure gate was showing a propaganda video about the greatness of their king – apparently he just about invented everything in the universe).

We were late arriving in rainy Sydney, and very nearly missed our flight to Canberra. However, luck was finally on our side, and here I am back in summer clothes and enjoying the sunny afternoon!

Adding it all up, it was about two and a half days of travel, which is insane.

After drinks on this hot, sunny afternoon. (And – as always – the Sydney news said there were thunderstorms in Canberra. Uh, yeah, sure!)

Storm coming in Sydney…

We were on our way to an early, pre-theatre dinner at Circular Quay in Sydney a few days ago. You can see the storm coming over the Harbour Bridge, and it hit a couple of minutes after these pictures were taken.

Also, note the ship is just leaving to start a cruise!
