Thursday to Saturday

When you fly somewhere you will often see a +1 after the arrival time. This means that you arrive the day following your takeoff time. For my flight this week it had a +2.

San Francisco Airport, Flight to SYD, SFOMy flight was at 10:40 pm, so that pretty much means that it will arrive at least the next day.

I am glad that I arrived at the airport early, as I had some problems with my Australian ETA. Two transposed numbers cost me an half an hour of phone calls, plus the cost of a new ETA, to get it corrected.

787, Polaris, United Airlines, Business Class After a short wait in the lounge it was time for boarding. I got an upgrade, so was able to check off a bucket list item. Fly business class on a 787. It was also nice to experience the new Polaris amenities.

United Airlines, Business Class, DinnerI was looking forward to dinner so that I could then relax and get some sleep. Here is my shrimp appetizer.

While waiting for dinner I watched a movie and then started another one while eating. I watched three movies on the flight and all were in Korean with English subtitles.

Sydney Transport, Trains, Macquarie University STationAfter landing in Sydney on Saturday morning after a 14+ hour flight I then took the train to the Macqarie University station. Then it was a two block walk to my apartment.

Meriton, North Ryde, Serviced Apartment, AustraliaI am staying in a one bedroom serviced apartment near the office. It is nice to have a kitchen, washer and dryer and a separate living area from my bedroom.

I had to take a trip to the grocery store this evening to get breakfast items for the next few days.

Now to stay up for just a bit longer before hopefully getting a good night of sleep.
