This I should say is a long anticipated trip. I have never visited Australia before and am absolutely in cloud nine when my company announced that I would have to head there for work, and that too a very long trip.

Since it is a long trip, I have had to pack everything by yesterday just making sure that all items have been packed sufficiently and that too in accordance to the regulations set by the Australian Customs as it varies to all other countries that I have visited before. Even packing of items have got to be in special see through seal-able plastic bags and that too in specific order as to which which is above which.

Having set all those yesterday itself, today it is time for me to head to the airport for this much awaited trip. I am flying Air Asia X this time and I know it is indeed a long flight and can be quite tiring. However, the excitement has overcome the anticipation of tiredness. 

My flight takes off at 10 at night and we left home early as I anticipate massive traffic even on the highway today due to an important football match that happens in Shah Alam between Malaysia and Thailand. As anticipated, it was literally a crawl and at times, I had butterflies in my stomach as to weather I would reach the airport in time.

Luckily I had set out early and was able to reach an hour ahead of flight time. There were many disgruntled passengers seen at the airport who had missed their flights due to this traffic jam. Pity them, they have to buy fresh tickets for their journey onwards.

With that said, since I had limited time at the airport, expedited on the check in arrangements and then head to the boarding gate. The call to board came 30 minutes ahead of flight time and it took off on time. 

Hope you would be able to enjoy this trip along with me from the coming entries and it is indeed going to be a long journey.
