Today we leave !!!!!! Free shuttle to the airport and a quick 3 minute trip, we are a bit early, but you know me, I like to be on time. I must admit we are all feeling a little anxious, especially me as I hope all the planning pays off. All of our bookings I have done online, no stuff ups I hope. We checked in and I was relieved when the Qantas girl was able to check us all the way to Hawaii, even offered us transfers to the international terminal in Sydney. And as a bonus we have exit rows with plenty of leg room.

I now feel good as we all know we are at least booked to the US. After that who knows.

Spoke with my good mate Peter, he is going to meet us at the terminal in Sydney and spend a couple of hours with us. We don't have to pick up luggage as that is checked to Hawaii so it should be smooth sailing for the moment.

Just as a side note : many moons ago whilst I was in the Airforce, I was lucky enough to get a free flight to Hawaii. I was about 24 at the time, what is significant about that trip was that we were in Oahu on Pearl Harbour day.

Here I am 20 years later flying into Hawaii on 7th December. It wasn't planned that way, it just happened. The fickle finger of fate I'd say.
