She has arrived

After a long flight, Willemijn has arrived safely in Melbourne. Slightly tired and red-eyed, but in good spirit.

The flight-path from Dubai to Melbourne, mainly above the ocean.

For me, this meant getting up at 5:00h in the morning. Not something I am used to anymore, even though this was my usual time for the first week that I was here. Luckily the streets were empty and I was able to finish my coffee and wait till the plane had actually touched down before heading out to the airport.

EK406 has touched down at Melbourne airport. On board: my wife. :)

So it was that I had almost no time to wait before Willemijn came through the doors, loaded down with a lot of bags.

Slightly tired and red-eyed, but all in one piece and with a smile on her face.

And good thing, too, as parking here at the airport is AU$12.00 per hour. …and I thought the parking at European airports was expensive!

    1. Hoi Karin,
      Nee helaas niet. De Euro is op dit moment weinig waard, dat is dus niet zo gunstig voor ons. Sommige dingen zijn hier dan ook erg duur. Andere vallen reuze mee. Lunchen in een restaurant is bijvoorbeeld goed te betalen en wordt door de lokals ook volop gedaan. In ieder geval hier in het zakendistrict. Gisteren hebben we lekker aziatisch gegeten voor UAD 13 p.p. , ongeveer € 10. Groetjes Willemijn
