Well, we are here in beautiful sunny Adelaide
We got here late Saturday but have only just been able to get on the internet and my mobile won't work here despite being unlocked!
We flew in with Cathay Pacific to Melbourne via Hong Kong. Cathay Pacific - what can I say? Airline/ flights were fine. Stewardesses were bloody gorgeous, good job I was tired I can tell you :Randy-git: (Hope the mrs isn't reading this!). Why is it that they manage to find attractive girls for stewardesses but the Asian 'lady' travellers were all fat? They also burp a helluva lot! This kept me awake so I had to listen to music to drown out the sound of belching!! Oh yeah, don't have the congee for breakfast. I didn't know what it was so tried it. I think congee must mean congealed. It was like thick wallpaper paste with spicy chicken stuck to it. Not good when jetlagged.
The stay in Melbourne was fine until we had to get the taxi to the train station. I ordered it for 8am but there was no taxi to be found. I called three times, each time they said it was on its way. Our train was due to leave at 0840. The taxi arrived at 0829 It dropped us off at the station, four of us with 7 cases plus hand luggage. I sent my 8 year old off, running, with a suitcase, and he managed to stop the train as it tried to depart - superstar. Don't know what we'd have done without him! Still wouldn't be here now.
Anyway, now enjoying the wife's birthday in the sun with a cool beer by our pool thinking yeah, it was worth it.
Anyone fancy a beer cause we don't know anybody. We are in Christies Beach. We've got a few mates from PIA we need to contact when we get our mobile working but would be good to meet up with new friends.
See ya soon!
