Our Trip to The Land of Oz
A few months ago, Rob and I decided to take the 20+ hour flight journey to the land of oz during spring break! (Ironically, my favorite movie/musical is the Wizard of Oz).
We flew 5 hours to LAX, had a 3 hour layover and then embarked 15 hours overseas to Sydney. The flight was comfortable (though I don’t think the seats reclined back as far as I’m used to). We were served grilled chicken and spinach, a “sandwich” and omlet with fruit for our meals. I of course had a large carry on bag packed full of snacks (grapes, blueberries, pears, hard boiled eggs, popcorn, string cheese, grilled chicken, homemade trail Mix and a homemade granola bar).
We landed and got through customs quickly. *You need to get a ticket before getting your photo taken and then getting your bag. If you have a chip in your passport, you can go to any kiosk. There are some along your walk but we waited until the customs line… go to the first ones you see to save time!
After, we grabbed an Uber from the express pickup spot (exit airport and walk through the parking garage toward the right) and took a 25 minute ride to Pyrmont.
After some walking, we went back to shower… much needed! I did a little workout in the gym and then we went out to get some snacks at the grocery store “coles”. Grapes, popcorn, cereal and milk were on my list. I also found this amazing yogurt. I tried it and it is SOOO GOOD! This will totally be on my list throughout my two weeks here 🙂
