The flight over to Sydney showed the more realistic face of Australia during a January/February period.
We hadn't been to Sydney together before... and we had about 8 hours to kill so we jumped into a shuttle bus and headed into the city.
Finally the moment had come... we were officially on our way... and we couldn't be more excited about it. How the hell am I gonna get to sleep on the plane?
Hmmm... apparently the whole day-trip in Sydney definitely had the effect of wearing us out... as suitably demonstrated by myself... just over 9 hours to go before we hit Narita airport....
...Ok... no academy award in the mail.
