Liz and I just returned home from a four week long adventure. Over the next few weeks I will endeavor to share our trip with you, providing some details and images of our travels. If you want to make sure that you know when new postings appear simply plug your email into the box on the right where it says “subscribe to blog” and you will get an email when I post new articles. You can opt-out just as easily at any time.
To begin our latest adventure we first had to travel from our home in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina to Sydney, Australia. You do not need to be a student of geography to know that is a long way. In fact it is 9,590 miles and will obviously involve air travel. We began by flying to Dallas, Texas where we boarded a Qantas A380-800 Airbus for a non-stop 17 hour flight to Sydney! This plane is so big it has TWO complete decks. It will hold 525 people in the typical three-class configuration. It was a pure joy to fly on this beast.
When we left Dallas it was (local time) 10:40 PM on Monday April 4th. When we arrived in Sydney it was (local time) 6:30 AM on Wednesday April 6th! Lost a day to the International Date Line!
Pictured below is a Qantas A380-800 Airbus like we flew on. Stay tuned and enjoy our adventure with us!
