And we’re off!

Warning: obnoxious departure post ahead!

Well the time has come folks! A year in the making and now we’re at the airport waiting for our flight.

My bag was way too heavy for my liking considering we are outbound but I packed a spare bag so we can offload if need be! Brisbane has also introduced electronic check in via kiosks which was super annoying.

I love airports. I love flying. It’s such a buzz. Like the opening scenes to Love Actually. Sure, not everyone is flying for pleasure or en-route to something good, but the sense of possibility and adventure is what gets me. Plus I still marvel at how we manage to fly thousands of kilometres in a metal tube. What a time to be alive.

Like any self-respecting travellers, we’re at Windmill and Co. for a pre-flight snack, including pre-flight alcohol for mummy. A pleasure as always – thanks George and Rach. If you’re flying domestic, you MUST try their latest venture The Lord Lamington.

Breakfast omlette 🙌

I’d like to give a massive shout-out to my agent de voyage: Chris Ezzy and his wonderful wifey Sami (my cousin) for doing all the hard work and organising this trip. I didn’t think I’d need a travel agent because of all the handy websites and hacks these days, but Chris and Sam were invaluable with their knowledge – thinking of things I never would have considered. Plus they have access to more rooms and deals than you can poke a stick at.

That’s it for now, will check in at the other end. Someone has to drink this mimosa. What? Yes it’s only 9 am, but I’m getting into the #WhenInRome spirit of things (or rather #AlmostInRome).
