We had to be at the airport at 6am the day we flew out, so we spent the night before in Sydney. We stayed near China Town.
Which is near Darling Harbour.
Which is a real tourist hot spot. Nice place though. Right in the middle of the city. Those buildings are the city centre, so you just walk over a little bridge and here you are, on the water.
We had a meal at a seafood restaurant that cost us about the same amount as all our meals combined for a week in Thailand.
Then Jem and I played in the toilets for a while.
I could have done with this survival pack on the plane. But of course we'd packed it in our check in luggage.
And then it was time to go home and have an early night because we had to be up at 5am.
But we didn't. We went to another bar and discussed plane crash strategy.
We decided we should have a common song to blow on our life jacket whistles if we crashed so we would all be able to meet somewhere. We first thought jingle bells was a good idea but then someone said deck the halls. But we decided all that fa la la la la – ing would be too taxing on our energy. So then we thought three blind mice was a good one because it was nice and easy. Jem was confused by then and we said that we'd all be 3 blind mice-ing our way towards each other and we'd hear this little lone jingle bells whistle tune and we'd all go – no, thats not one of our group.
