Our delegation of 13 students, 2 teachers and 3 parents met at Adelaide airport for our 12.15pm departure to Sydney. It was a bit of a rough journey to begin with, given the thunderstorms, but we eventually cleared them and settled in… mostly. One of our students had come down with a 24-hour gastro bug during the night. She made it to Sydney without incident, but suffered a little on the leg to Singapore (she is doing much better now). Another had eaten something that disagreed with her just before departing, and vomited all the way to Sydney, poor darling. She is back to normal now too! I managed to assist both girls without joining in in sympathy so am pretty chuffed with myself!
We made our connection to the flight to London via Singapore comfortably, and our flight passed without incident. I think the record for most movies watched during the flight was Casey with 6 1/2 films. I managed to watch ‘The Hangover’ (very, very wrong, but very, very funny), ‘Adventureland’ (quite liked it), ‘My Life in Ruins’ (meh…), ‘My Year Without Sex’ (about the relationship between a husband and wife in the year after she survives an aneurysm – quite good), and ‘Young Victoria’ (had already seen it, but enjoyed it again).
I think we all survived the flight comfortably… some even managed a few hours sleep!
