Left Hobart airport at 9.55am. Didn’t think that Mum and Dad were going to make it to see us off but they did. Mum bought me a guardian angel.
Flight to Melbourne seemed quick. Had about a 2 hour wait but caught up with a Customs Officer that Mark knew who took us to lunch. got on a jumbo jet to go to Sydney. Managed to get upstairs seats. Wonderful! Drowsed in the sun by the window. Had about an hours wait in Sydney, then 8 hour flight to Singapore. Got off and had a look at Singapore’s Changi Airport (transit area). Not very exciting. Then long 13 hour flight to London. Leg to Singapore wasn’t so bad because I found a seat up front where I could really stretch out and put my feel up. Singapore to London was bit cramped. Took a sleeping tablet and managed to get a good 6 hours sleep. Woke up over Tehran.
Had a look in the cockpit.
