Packed and showered, Bear went to bed, got up for supper at midnight and went back to bed – don’t ask, I didn’t. I settled to write some blogs and wait for four am, time to leave Beez for a bit of an at-venture. That began really quickly when our taxi couldn’t find us. A few text messages and our lovely South African driver whizzed us to the station. Train on time, we left Hamilton at ten to five and settled for the journey to Sydney. We changed at Central and after a few stops we were in Domestic Departures. Checked in, time for a cup of tea and a look at the Virgin girls.
