02-02-17 15 Hours SYD-DXB

Thursday 2nd February 2017

Our final morning in Sydney has arrived. Thankfully we are in 5* luxury and have a driver to deliver us to the airport, staff to carry our bags and are assured of an entire row for stretching out when onboard.

At 5:3o AM when we board, Kingsley is in disbelief when he spots his Bah-Bah waiting for us at the aft door. He runs into the outstretched arms of Erroll. All the crew around us swoon. We are treated like VIPs from push back till touch down 15 hours later: fluffy pillows from Business Class; gourmet nuts; a Cosmopolitan (!); meals and snacks from First Class; endless array of toys for Kingsley and of course the self-indulgence of no less than two lengthy sleeps due to caring crew keeping an eye on Kingsley.

The child sleeps even more than I do, most probably because he is feeling the effects of the non-stop action he reveled in while holidaying in Sydney…
