HMEL0828SonnyphotosJacqui has a fear of flying, but here we are again, lappin' it up in the first Class lounge at Qantas. Flying to Adelaide to visit Jacqui's friend, and we are on an international flight, even though we are only going to Adelaide, the plane then goes on to Simgapore therefore it is classed as an international flight. Bonus

Singapore > Sydney

HMEL0326Sonnyphotossunrise somewhere over south west nsw, as soon as we left Singapore, I asked the stewardess to make my bed ( got to love upgrades ) so I did not have any dinner service, but damn I had a good sleep, and see-ing as I go straight into work mode when I arrive in Sydney felt it was pretty important to get a decent sleep. So it's nice to wake up to these colours HMEL0331Sonnyphotoslove this  fluffy mauve colour HMEL0333Sonnyphotos


sun's coming up HMEL0349Sonnyphotos
