23.08.2014 - 23.08.2014
When I posted an entry last Tuesday, I thought I'd be way too busy for the rest of the week to have time for another update. here I am on a Saturday afternoon with nothing of any consequence to occupy my time.
I've updated the software on the PC and the Galaxy phone so that there's no unexpected chunks of bandwidth while working on expensive or flaky internet connections.
We've calculated the number and counted out our medications for the duration. All set for the next 5 weeks away.
Mail delivery has been stopped. Now there's a strange thing !! You have to pay the Post Office for them to NOT deliver the mail. So we're paying them more but they are doing less. I wonder if there's another example where you pay more for less service ??
We will set off on Monday morning to drive to Queanbeyan where we have one or two purchases to make that couldn't be sourced locally. We've booked a Motel room for the night. Then on Tuesday the long haul to Copenhagen begins. We will meet up with Natalie at about 07:30 where we'll have a quick bite and a cuppa. She'll then drop us off at the Bus station for the 10:00 Murrays Coach service to Sydney International Airport. That run will take 3 hours 15 minutes.
We fly out at 21:10 on Emirates flight 413 for Dubai, arriving there at 05:40 on Wednesday - flight time 14 hours 30 minutes. Our flight to Copenhagen departs Dubai at 08:30 and we arrive at 13:10 - flight time 6 hours 40 minutes. By the time we get to the Hotel we will have been travelling for close to 40 hours. I think we'll appreciate the bed !!
It is likely to be some time on Thursday before I'll get the chance to post another segment in this saga.
Until then, stay well and see you then.
The local paper recently printed one of my photos in their Hot Shot segment. This link should take you to that image on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-08-09
