The trip started in the usual way, a frenzied packing and cleaning day and then three hours sleep before catching a fllight to LA. We had decided to break the trip up by stopping in LA overnight and getting some Christmas shopping done on our way to Aus. Anita was brave enough to volunteer to drive in LA, the GPS was an absolute god-send!
We are currently visiting Australia and catching up on over two years of growth in the nieces and nephews, and catching up on friends and family.
After the shopping spree we headed to LAX to catch our long-awaited flight to Australia. The 15.5 hour journey was not as painful as we may have thought, Will had the least painful flight as we put his 6 foot 2 inch frame into an exit row (nice parents eh!).
