PS - We already miss our cruise friends!!
Hello Everybody!! Our vacation to Australia has officially kicked off. For those of you who weren't on our blog during last years trip, welcome. To everybody that followed along last year, welcome back. Pops dropped us off at the airport about an hour ago and Christine and I are in the United Red Carpet Club eating some free food and drinking some overpriced beer (well I am anyway). If you would like to track our flight to LA, we are on United Airlines Flight #943 (Boeing 757). We are due to depart at 5:30PM and arrive in LA at 7:51PM. We have a 2 hour layover in LA before departing for Melbourne via Sydney (brief stop). We have a total of 17 hours of travel time between LA and Melbourne!! As far as time changes go, we will be 16 hours ahead of Chicago. We were just told that our plane is equipped with 1.21 Jigowatts of power so we will basically be in the future by 16 hours. In case anybody wants to know what his going to happen to them in 16 hours from the present, just shoot us an E-mail and we will let you know! We will leave you with our first video from the road and a random picture of me and Curtis Stone who I happened to meet at McCormick Place last week. If you don't know Curtis, he is a celebrity chef who hails from Melbourne, our first stop. He was also a contestant on the last season of celebrity Apprentice with our wonderful ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich! We will talk to you all soon when we land in LA!
