What I did

Flag of Australia  , New South Wales,
Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Made it to Sydney! The flight wasn't terribly interesting for the most part, just read and talked to the guy next to me for an hour or so. We landed here at 9am local time (or 11am NZT). I've attached a photo of a Boeing 737-800 owned/leased by Qantas as this is what I flew on this morning.

It was really sad leaving but the time will go by fast enough and I'll be home again with the people I love most.

About four more hours until I leave for Singapore - that time can't come soon enough! 

So I bought lunch from this place which purports to sell Italian food, but doesn't really. I got a 'beef burger' which cost $10 AUD and a 450ml bottle of Coke which set me back $4.50 AUD. Here I was thinking that it was expensive to buy things in NZ! Still, the burger was alright. The onions in it were cold and there was so much un-ground pepper in the beef patty, but the rest of it was good (That's the stuff they didn't really prep, the lettuce and tomatoes), and me being hungry I ate it all anyway.

I've just spent the last hour or so talking to a woman from Arkansas who was using her laptop in the seat across from me seeing as she has just come from New Zealand herself and is on her way back home. She told me all about the trips she's done recently and every thing she plans to do in the future and then she said  to me "It's never a once in a lifetime opportunity, it's a first time opportunity, because you only ever get one first time to do something."  There are always chances to go back and do things again. Maybe not straight away, it might take ten years but there is always a chance to re-do things, but never a chance to get that first-time experience twice! 

I am meeting some really interesting people here in Aus, I'm enjoying it =) I'm also enjoying the fact that I'm able to start up conversations with complete strangers who are sitting near me and being able to talk about insightful things. Bring on more of that! 

Love to all
