Transit update

Because I know some of you kind souls will be worrying about me. I'm in Auckland airport right now, waiting for my connecting flight back to Brisbane which is still a few hours away. So far everything has gone smoothly, in fact I found out that a 12 hour flight is less gruelling than a 6 hour flight, maybe because they go to more trouble to make you comfortable. I''m pretty sure I slept on the plane, which I would have said was impossible just three weeks. How the rat has changed in just three weeks. I'feel happier and more confident. I'll see how much of that I will keep with me over the following months. I will do another quick update when I'm safely back at Westhaven.

I'm impressed that you prefer a 12 hour flight! You're lucky to be able to sleep in a plane. I can, but only if I can use two seats to lie down. I had that chance on Qantas from Melbourne to Los Angeles (14 hours).

I've always found it hard to sleep on a plane myself. On my last international flight, I just read books and asked for sandwiches from the onboard kitchen the whole night.

Ach the travel to and from home must have been the worst part of the trip. Isn't it about 14 hours flying time to Australia from the east side of North America? My brother went to Australia last summer and said his flight took about 14 hours. Anyway have a safe journey the rest of the way back home.

When returning from Scotland I slept apparently with loud snores up to the point that the person sitting next to me woke me up.


Glad to see you home safe
