Walk About

I made it to Sydney after a rather awful trip. Mechanical problems, delayed flights, lost luggage, a 14 hour long flight with no leg room. Ick. I didn't have a good attitude going into the travel part of this trip ... but I'm here.

The first of several lines to get from the plane to the outside of the airport. This is just the area that leads to where you line up for customs.

Couldn't take pictures in Customs, baggage claim, lost baggage window or Exit/Quarantine. This is part of the queue for the taxi stand. 2 hours from plane to taxi.

I'd been up for over 40 hours (lost count) but it is summer and I wasn't tired. There is a reserve within walking distance of my motel so I went on a bushwalk.

Having walked for an hour, it was time to find something to eat. The only place close (that was open on a Sunday afternoon) was a pub that has a GREAT chicken burger.

I sat and watched rugby and cricket for a while. I have no clue what was going on in either game. Every single person I've met has been incredibly nice. I think it will be a good week.

Is that the Pub just down the street from Techtel? If so, I ate there too, and their chicken sandwich was very good. Sorry to hear about your flight experience, sure hope the trip home is much better.

That's the one. I'm sure I'll be eating there again soon; there aren't too many other options around here & the pub is a nice place.
