We landed and got to our taxi fairly quick (within the hour)…headed to our AirBnB and were checked in and on our way to get some grub in no time. Just a couple delays here and there (checking in and the taxi driver’s unique way of getting to our place.
Not much to write home about here except the fact that we somehow lost an entire day!! We left Hawaii at 8:00 AM and arrived in Sydney at 3:30 PM THE NEXT DAY! Word to the wise – pull an “Ed” and arrive at the airport at least 2.5 hours before takeoff (ideally should be 3). We thought 2 hours would be plenty of time as we had a pretty early morning flight. We were completely fine but only have about 40 minutes extra time did not seem like enough as we should have had. The line to check our bags was about a 30 minute wait and then security was pretty fast – but this was without a large group – seemed it was really just our plane.
