Sydney and Back Home

November 17, 2010

Well, I’ve been back to the states for a bit now just hadn’t had time to sit down and write a posting. For the last part of the trip we stayed in Sydney for 3 days, mostly with the idea of we were kind of in the area so why not stop by.

Well Sarah and I made it to Auckland, longest flight ever from LAX to Auckland international! The flight itself was alright. At this point I wouldn’t recommend United Air to anyone as they over booked the flight and Sarah didn’t have a seat. After asking people to give up their seat for $400 credit and a hotel in Boston, Sarah had a seat given to her but on the other end of the plane. ... Read more
