Australia is the singular most amazing place in the world (I’m quite biased). We were lucky enough to go there earlier this month for three weeks. Here’s what happened.
We flew American Airlines from Boston to LAX, transited in the lovely new shiny part of the Tom Bradley terminal – which was sadly lacking shops, but did have free WiFi – to a Qantas A380 for a 15hr+ flight to Melbourne. Oh boy was I glad to get off that plane.
We spent a fantastic long weekend in Melbourne with family enjoying the warm weather, the beautiful sunshine and great food. I went for a couple of runs, including my fastest 10km ever (58.30 for a pace of 5:50).
Then I flew (Qantas again) to my most favourite city in the whole world – Brisbane, Queensland.
I stayed with my fabulous best friend Chantal and we hung out, doing things like going for coffee, running and having dinner at Popolo on Southbank.
Then we were off to Sydney!
More on that in Part 2 🙂
