Day 57 – Went to watch the Geeling v Hawthorn game at the MCG – more about the MCG tomorrow. Continue reading “Day 57 & 58 – Melbourne – MCG”
We awoke to a clear day, yeh, we have looked at the CN tower from our hotel window since we arrived. Most of the time the top of it has been shrouded by cloud. Today we can see it all.
After an early rise (07.00) we headed off to Hong Kong International for our 08.40 departure. This stage of the journey takes us to Toronto. A 14 hour flight that gets us there in daylight. We will be chasing the sun all the way. No photos out of HK – too much smog.
A quiet day amongst the skyscrapers. Took a hike up to the Ladies Markets north of our location for some night shopping and a feed. Its name is its meaning. Goods some mainly sold to women; clothing, bags, i Gear, shoes, slippers and general bric a brac.
04.00 alarm, and not a soul in sight out the front. 04.30 taxi from Fremantle and we are finally on our way to Perth Airport. 15 months in the planning and the Long Service Leave has arrived. Perth Airport is still what it is. A third division airport attempting to join the premier league. 20 years and it should be there. Cathay Pacific as an airline have been fantastic. A 2am text from the airline welcoming us to the flight later that morning. Great customer service.
