After being up since 5:30am the previous work day, today required a bit of Ross sleep in. Then off to shops to collect travel tickets, currency and last minute purchases.

Re-packed and culled luggage once more. Surprisingly, I am not taking much yet my luggage still weighs 18kg...must be the bag. Last meal at Karyn's, which was yum. Off to airport – starting to get a bit anxious. Thanks to Mum and Kaz for seeing me off.

I think I had the fastest trip thru duty free in history. Grabbed 2 bottles of Johnny Walker Black (as always), paid and put on hold for collection on my return. Rushed to customs and stupidly forgot to take laptop out of my back-pack so the buzzer went off, my face went red and I had to run back and unpack the laptop. Then enjoyed 20+ hrs of Emirates flights.

Overall, the flights were good. Not convinced on the Emirates Airlines service, but they definitely have great technology and being able to watch whatever movie, concert, listen to CD etc. helped pass the time. Was able to get a bit of sleep on way to Dubai, but was crammed between other people.

Dubai was steamy and full of haze. Airport huge as expected. Had a browse for things I might get on my way back (2 hr stopover). Then on to London! Again, got some sleep and watched some vids (7 hr flight).
