Sydney Airport Lounge Qantas

13 September 2012

No legroom photos

I am back in Sydney.
Still have to get to Adelaide.
The 10 hour flight was uneventful, largely thanks to the wonders of Xanax, which puts me to sleep but doesnt make me tired. I have no idea how it works.
Here I am typing this now just minutes after getting off the plane and I am typing at full speed without making any errors.

I was really rushed in Shanghai airport, normally I get to airports many hours too early but as Qantas only has one flight a day to anywhere in China, I heard you can only check in 2 hours before the flight and that the lounges are crap, which indeed is true.
However worse than that, the internet in the Cathay pacific lounge was so slow that I couldnt even upload my photos from the day.

I cant remember much about the flight, I declined dinner and watched parts of the movie Dark Shadows, I was asleep before it finished and remained asleep until they came with breakfast, then went to sleep again until the wheels hit the ground. Virtual teleportation.

As for my trip in general, I delcare it best trip ever! I say that in my Juan Antonio Samaranch voice.
All locations visited were great, Nanjing and Hangzhou warranted more time. If I had my time over again as I think I mentioned elsewhere, I would spend less time in Shanghai as I had been there before, and more time in the surrounding locations.
I could easily go to Shanghai again and go to other nearby cities I havent visited yet, such as Ningbo, Shaoxing, Heifei just to name a few. Bullet trains are great things.
Highlights were climbing hills in the soaring heat. Admittedly that may have been better a month or so later. But I never really suffered from the heat.
Strangely my feet blistered up after about 2 days, but then after I drained them of fluid (which is great fun), they never really hurt again. Same goes for my back, it hurt for 2 days and since then its fine. The morale of this story is, just keep walking, once you have done that initial 100km or so you get into the zone. Or something.

I probably wont type anything else unless theres an epic drama getting to Adelaide, enjoying free coffee in the Qantas lounge in Sydney now.
Pictures below are pointless, like most of those above!
