Travelling at Easter
Travelling at Easter,

If you are ever thinking of travelling on a plane around Easter – make sure you do on Easter Sunday. Okay so the time of the flight wasn’t the best..6am. But the plane itself was practically empty. We were moved to the seats over the wing, extra leg room is always appreciated.

As you can see by the picture everyone on board received a Lindt gold bunny along with the standard issue food. I must also admit to getting an extra one that I spotted on the floor of the plane while we were waiting to get off in Sydney. Then we also got another one on the flight to Tokyo.

The rest of the food on the flight from Sydney to Tokyo was pretty good too – obviously a sign of things to come.

Whoever told me that the flight shouldn’t have much turbulence because it was straight up was wrong. Nothing major… Nothing that involved the warning light going on, but it was enough. Thankfully I was kept occupied with a range of movies, comedy shows, and long games of Tetris.
