    Aussie schools in NSW (excluding some private) start holidays this Saturday and go back on the 8th or 9th of October depending on the school. So guessing that abuzzfanfromaustral's kids will only miss the last 3 days of this term and a few days of term 4, going off how long their trip is ::yes::

    Oh thanks Frangipanisam, I did not know that. I presumed we were on the same dates as, when trying to get hotel space in Fiji, we always seem to have to compete with the Aussies on school holidays!! :rotfl2:

    Haha well maybe it's another state messing up your plans ::yes:: for some silly reason we don't have the same school holidays nationally!

    We're off today - 3 1/2 hours till we leave for the airport. Husband has picked up our 11 year old from school camp in Narrabeen, he was meant to leave at 5am but was so nervous about traffic he was awake at 3am and left then!! and they were on their way home but just rang to say my daughter left my camera at camp so they're going back to get it.

    So nervous, I hate the plane trip - I'll relax once we get there.

    That's one early start. Should at least get some sleep on the plane with such an early wake up. Enjoy your trip.

    See - there was a reason he left so early!! :)
    Have a great flight! I'm sure all will be fine!
    I'm doing the "in 2 weeks I'll be..." right now - and I'll be the same as you - waiting to catch the flight!!
    Looking forward to hearing how it all goes.
    Safe travels. :thumbsup2

    I usually relax once we are seated on the international flight. I figure it's as planned as it can be at this point, now lets just relax and enjoy it.

    Have a great trip.

    So sitting here trying Tao get some decent wifi......we are on the 14 th floor at BLT and I have to camp out side my neighbors door while standing on my head to get a bit of signal......
    Anyway, tomorrow we leave for LA.....it's been an awesome trip so far, the cruise was brill, the last few days at wdw have been awesome, although the weather is wet and humid.......I have a tan, and we just got an email to say we have been upgraded to business class on the way home, so collecting frequent flyer points and scheming helps big time......I was worried we would be over our baggage limit, but now I get to bring home 6 suitcases of 32 kg each...oh the humanity:cheer2:
    Anyway, just checking in, have 1000's of photos/ food porn to share.....be home next tuesday so stay tuned.....:thumbsup2

    Awesome news re your upgrade, you lucky duck!! :)

    You're a doll to offer to get us into the NZ lounge but I think it would be a stretch for all 3 of us? Actually, my DH has now remembered that his Amex card gets us into one of the lounges in the Tom Bradley terminal so we might chill out in there before the flight. If we don't see you before hand I'll keep an eye out for the tanned, relaxed gal with the scary carryon as I make my way (jealously) through business class en route to the cattle section.... :rotfl:

    Hope you have fun for your last couple of days, it's pretty sad that the trip is coming to an end.... :sad:

    My DH got pulled over for speeding on the Interstate in New Mexico today so I'm just pleased we weren't deported on the spot! :scared:

    Hello all, we arrived home from our 2 week DL trip yesterday morning. All up bright and early today after a really early bedtime yesterday! All good on the trip, we really liked Virgin Australia and would definitely fly them over Qantas again. Loved the Paradise Pier and would stay there again over DL hotel or Grand Californian. Only downers were the weather - very hot (early to mid 30's, I hate hot weather!) and quite humid for California, plus bigger crowds than expected (I think lots of people have delayed their summer trips until now, due to Carsland and wanting to beat the crowds then). Will do my TR eventually, too much unpacking and washing to do first - back to reality!

    We are flying Virgin and staying at PPH concierge level. After loving GCH on our last trip I'm glad to hear you really loved PPH. Looking forward to hearing about your holiday.
