Thursday 5 June & Friday 6 June 2014 – Start of my overseas trip

Peter and I left for the Canberra airport at 4.15. Checked in my 18 kgs of luggage and went through Immigration. Boarded my Emirates flight 5737 for Adelaide and left at 5.55. Arrived in Adelaide at 7.15.  Went through Immigration and then Customs before boarding Emirates Ek441 and left at 9.50.


The flight was really smooth. Served a meal and then it was a 12 1/2 hours to DUBAI. We arrived there at 5.35am on the Friday.  Another lot of formalities before boarding Emirates EK73 for departure at 8.20.  Was another 6 1/2 hours until we arrived in PARIS Charles DeGaulle Airport.  Collected my luggage and waited for my transfer to Hotel Rue de Paix.  Had 3 stops for other passengers and finally got to my hotel about 5.00 as delayed because of an accident on the motorway.

I was quite tired as only catnaps on the flights so it was an early night.
