We landed in Cairns on the 17th of July at 12:25. Just in time for lunch, but first we checked into our hotel; very nice.
We left Los Angeles at 11:50 pm on the 15th of July. It took us a total of 19 hours and 35 minutes to get there; and that includes our 3 hour layover in Sydney . . . we definitetly lost some time . . . weird, huhh?
While we were waiting in Sydney we ate breakfast at the airport. I had an omlette that was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal. It helped keep us upbeat while we waited to finish the last leg of our LONG flight.
We each picked something special to do on this VACA – my husband, Eric, picked ‘Cairns Tropical Zoo, I wanted to purchase art or crafts, my daughter, Summer, wanted to go to the Great Barrier Reef, and my son, Dustin, wanted a scenic helicopter ride, which we did while on our day cruise to the Reef.
