Today started with us busily finalising packing and departing for Sydney at around 0800h. Scott-the-Cat was delivered to his temporary new parents last night (thanks Bree) and the neighbours came over last night for instructions on what needs to be done whilst we are away (thanks Todd and Tash). The drive to Sydney was uneventful (as you would expect in the fully-sick Captiva) with a brief stop for breakfast at McDonalds, Goulburn.
On arrival into Sydney, Maureen, Schuyler and Joshua were dropped off at Sydney's Kingsford Smith International Terminal, whilst Kyle and I drove to Victoria Barracks (an inner Sydney Army base) to drop off the car for long-term parking. Once sorted we were picked up and taken to the airport in a very funky yellow Renault Clio (thanks Pop).
Check-in was relatively smooth though the queue was pretty long. Customs and Security was like clock-work, leaving us here sitting in the Qantas Club with the family asking me to hurry up so they can get some duty free shopping underway.
Our Aircraft today will be a Qantas A380-800 (VH-QOD) with boarding scheduled to commence at 1440h.
