Today we woke up early at 7 AM. We had to catch our plane early, so we packed up, showered and went to the lobby to checkout. We called a taxi with the taxi phone, and our taxi was there in about 5 minutes. We packed our bags into the taxi, and headed to the airport. It was about a 12 minute ride to the airport, and when we got there, we were dropped off at the Virgin Australia terminal. We checked our bags, and went to security, then went to Hungry Jacks to get egg mcmuffins. We started walking to our gate, but stopped at the Virgin Australia store. I looked around, and bought a book; The Confession by John Grisham. We kept walking to the gate, and got there. We waited for 5 minutes, then boarded our plane. We were flying to Brisbane first connecting, on a Boeing 737-800. Our flight was about 2 hours. On the plane, for most of the time. I did crosswords and listened to music on my computer. When we landed in Brisbane, we got off the plane and went to find food. Again, we we ate at Hungry Jacks, unfortunately, there weren't any healthier restaurants in the airport. I had a double cheeseburger. We then walked towards our gate, to catch our flight to Cairns. By the time we got there, we only waited 5 minutes to board our plane. It again, was a Boeing 737-800, and was a 2.5 hour flight. I did the same on this plane as the last plane. and when we landed, we went into the airport to get our luggage off the carousel. It was very quick, we had the forst 4 bags off. When we got out of the airport, we caught a taxi to our hotel. It was about a 10 minute drive. When we got to our hotel in Cairns, we checked in, brought up our bags and went swimming. We then came back from swimming, and made supper in our room. We had a lasagna. Sfter that, I watched TV, The Davinci Code movie, then went to bed. Thanks for reading.
