On Airbus A380 towards Sydney!!
Boarding a plane has never been so cool as this one as I walked towards the Airbus A380… about to board the biggest passenger airplane in the world!
The massive two story airplane with the wide wingspan and huge engines was just something to experience up close!! Climbing onto this prestige passenger plane was something else! Getting this weight in the air was crazy and now I know why they needed to extend all the runways that it can take off! Was a great experience and the best and softest landing ever.
Finally we entered the beautiful continents of Australia and we felt that this was it! We are in the city where we will start our five year adventure.
We landed at 6 o-clock and had to wait until 17:00 that the couchsurfer, Mike, will be home where we will stay for a few days. This was maybe one of the longest days ever, as we have not slept in two days. We started calling customs at 9am so that we can find out where our bicycles are and if it has been delivered. After so much hope, it was sad to hear that it is still in a container in the harbour and must be cleared by customs.
I was actually happy on the one side, because I think of we got the bikes the same day, we would not have made a big effort in exploring the city.
So, after a very long day planning thing at the airport, riding expensive trains and sleeping in a park, we finally got at Mike’s place and could just chill out!
So the next few days we met some awesome people and explored the beautiful city of Sydney….
