Day 22 : Saturday 26th March 2005

Previous - Next

Back to Australia!

With a fairly large hangover, we eventually got up and by the time we had packed it was time to check out of the hotel. With our flight at 2:50pm, we decided that we would head for the airport straight away and hope to get on an earlier flight.

The trip to the airport took about 40 mins, which isn't bad apparently. But then it was Easter Saturday! When we got there, unfortunately the Qantas ticket office gave us short shrift with our cheap non-changeable tickets and we were resigned to taking our original flight.

QF120 Auckland Intl (AKL) - Sydney Kingsford Smith (SYD)

Sydney immigration hall was empty and the bags came off quickly. Once these had been scanned by customs, we headed outside and got a taxi back to the Four Points hotel in Darling Harbour, where we had stayed before.

For dinner, we decided to head down to the Rocks and we ate at a small noodle stand called Wok on Noodle. It was excellent and I had a tasty Singapore Noodles. As this was my last day of holiday (my friend was staying on for an extra week), we explored a few drinking holes in the Rocks and on the way back stumbled across a few more bars - one in particular near to our hotel which was a downstairs Irish bar which had a band playing who were excellent . We eventually got back to the hotel again quite late and quite drunk .
