Ferry Family's Excellent Adventure to SEA


25 May 2017

Off to Bali! 6 1/2 hours flight time. On Virgin Australia
Flight time from LA to Sydney 14 1/2 hours. Slept around 9-10 of those. Yeah us! Short layover. 4 hours. Originally went to international transfers. Had to get out of there - spoke with 4 people before released. Had to clear customs. Then found train to city. Purchased round trip tix - 140 AUD. 25 min ride in. Had 30 minutes at Circle Quay stop at Harbor. Saw cruise ship, harbor bridge, ferries, and of course the opera house. 15 minute return trip. Made flight to Bali in plenty of time.

Malibu and Santa Monica Pier

23 May 2017

Flight delayed 20 minutes. 2 1/2 hours to LA.
Leaving Denver to LAX. A bit tricky at check in. Couldn't check bags all way through to Bali. Need to retrieve and recheck in LA due to length of layover. Then couldn't find all five Australian visas. Finally found the fifth one in dawns gmail. While checking, two apps required new sign in info due to updates further delaying figuring out. Thankfully no line at security and we were able to get Dunkin' Donuts several minutes before boarding. All good. Here we go!
