Flight from Sydney to Perth, one of the nicer flights we’ve been on, with the little more expensive option of course to make it happen that way. Turned out to be a long day with just under 5 hrs to Perth, a 2 hour wait there then onto a smaller aircraft for another 2 ½ hr flight up to Broome.
I had a window seat and every time I fly over anywhere on long haul in Australia, it’s staggering to think how bit this country really is. WE flew for ages with nothing but red earth below us and no sign of habitation anywhere for miles. The odd long stretch of road or pipeline, never sure which from up high but otherwise nothing.
Had we been on the left side of the aircraft we would have seen the magnificent sunset coming in to Broome based on the redness of the sky coming in those left windows. So it dusk by the time we got in, transfers ready for those of us going onto the cruise the next day and off to our accommodation for the evening.
Thought perhaps that staying a a ‘Mantra’ there might have been a restaurant but it was only apartments and not within walking distance of anything so it was a packet of chips and a bag of lollies for dinner! Didn’t matter, we’d eaten like kings on the flight over from Sydney so the last thing we needed was more food!
2 hr time difference so keep ourselves from going to bed and 7.30pm and stayed up just a little longer!
