Tuesday… again!

18 08 2009

I’m home after a very long day spent primarily on planes, I’m finally home, fully unpacked, the first load of washing is going through as I type, plants have been watered, dogs played with, and now it’s time for a nice hot shower and collapse into my own bed.

It’s totally surreal to think that a little over 24 hours ago I was in Fiji.  Time flies…  So do I!

But I’m back, Immigration went relatively smoothly, the flight from Fiji to Los Angeles was pretty horrendous.  The plane lights kept going out, the entertainment system kept stopping, there was a Medical Emergency (not sure what happened) that had the Flight staff paging the plane to see if there were any Doctors or Nurses on board…

We survived though.  Bleary eyed and tired, but we survived.  The treat at the end though was upgrading ourselves (for $50 each) to First Class for our final 2.5 hour trip from Los Angeles to Seattle.

A nice big seat, nice food, great service, and drinks to go with it all.  I finally even managed to get a nap in.

The normal routine starts again tomorrow, commencing with collecting the kitties from the “Resort”.

Good night all! 🙂

Farewell Fiji nearly…

18 08 2009

It’s our last day in Fiji today as we fly out this evening for Los Angeles, and then another flight back to Seattle.

No more sun, sand, surf, or cocktails in the pool.  Shame!

Before we go though, we’ll be going Horse Riding this morning, then having a final massage before heading back to the airport.

Oh, and the morning started super early, as I decided to get up and take some sunrise photos.  A whole 9 rolls of film worth.  It’ll be interesting to see them all when I finally have them processed.

Ok, time to go, have to pack, get sorted, and go ride a horsey!  Woohoo!
