Well here I am in the land of the never setting sun.....  Believe me when I say that I am so happy to be off the planes.  Let me begin...

Sydney airport dissapointed me quite a bit, I though it would be more, International.  Not in the middle of renovations and full of World Youth Day youths.  I orinally thought they were French, but no, not French, German... and considering why they were in Australia and what they would have done for the week before getting on the plane, they were rude, unfreindly, such a joy to be around.  I was sat right in the middle of them on the plane, and tell me that was a joy....  Made my trip from Sydney to Hong Kong, not very great and enjoyable.  Couldn't sleep that well, girl I was sitting next to, well I wont go into it.
Then on to Hong Kong International Airport, nice airport, and I enjoyed that, although was there so early that nothing was open and all i wanted was COFFEEEEEEEE.  Finally I found Starbucks and waited till the opened and bought the largest coffee they would sell....  So good, love my coffee.
Flight from Hong Kong to Helsinki was good, but very long and I was so tired, I couldn't sleep, so instead I set myself with the movies and off I went.  Until the entertainment unit for my seat broke, 5 hours into the flight with 5 hours still to go....  Oh the joy.  I was seriously beginning to think that it was not a good idea for me to be going on holidays, but here I am now. Lauree and Slade met me at the airport, where I got my first ever stamp in my passport and a look from Slade that says, who on earth and you and what do you think you want.  This look lasted about 5 minutes and for the last 4 hours he has been calling me Nan, Nanny, NANNYYYY.  I try to tell him that I am Tracey, or aunty Tracey, but no I am still Nanny..  Thanks Mum, I think you spoilt him and you are definately his favourite.

Oh yeah...  I can't get International Roaming to work.  So for the time being I am uncontactable to the real world, so I am sorry.

More to come.  Am going to try and get some sleep, thank goodness for Stilnox.
