SOS Day 6 – Yeah I Thought I Had Left too….

Posted: October 19, 2018 in Travel

Naming a travel blog SOS was probably chancing fate

So when last we left our hero he was tucked up in bed all packed and ready to leave at 0630 in morning to catch train to Airport and hook into QC alcohol free before 09:50 flight home to Flashman Inc Headquarters , Sunshine Coast. This was going to be a sensible day for eating and drinking…..

3 am. Beep Beep. Message on phone. Qantas. “ Your flight has been changed , please review and accept changes now “ Ok. In foggy state accept the new time of 14:00 hrs and check status. All good

3:30 am Beep Beep. Same fucking message ! Thanks a lot assholes, just as getting back to sleep.

There are no quarantees when you travel of course but on top of Doctor cancellation yesterday was wondering when 3rd penny would drop. So we went out and had a light breakfast and a walk around and even got a walk up start in next years Fireman Calendar 🤠

So we headed off about 10:15 and of course when not in a hurry every train is on time and ready just as you walk up. The airport was surprisingly quite as well and even though of course our check in was not straight forward now and needed “customer assistant “ we were still knocking on Qantas Club door at 11 am a mere 2.5 hrs before boarding . What could go wrong

Of course it’s not all bad news, just mostly bad news . Being a Glass Should always be Full kinda guy the delay in our flight did mean would be in club when bar opens at midday

This could take some clever planning. This is also the day of one of the Qantas Drought Relief flights to Longreach with “ celebrities” . Thus for first 45 mins of stay in QC Darryl Braithwaite was screeching out Horses next door ! It was certainly live trust me although to be honest he should have been put down.

Ding Ding . Flight QF 1580 to Unknown Destination now leaving at 14:45. I love how they say “ We thank you for your understanding “ Almost as if we had a choice….

Help

We finally left. Turn back the clocks Grandpa we are entering Queensland
