These photos were taken 26 hours ago as we waited for the first of 2 connecting trains to get to Brisbane Airport.
This is our luggage – 2 cases which each weighed 13kg and a small backpack.
We flew from Brisbane to Sydney, where we transferred to the international terminal for our flight to Dallas-Fort Worth. The direct flight was just on 15 hours of flying time.
Our arrival at Dallas was about 15 minutes late but it was the long queue to clear Customs which meant that we missed our connecting flight to Washington DC. 1.5 hours of shuffling along a few paces at a time. Once we were through Customs it was an easy matter of getting ourselves on the next American Airlines flight to Washington. We had about 30 minutes before departure so we found a Subway and bought a salad to share – yes, the servings are huge. It was about twice the size of a Subway salad at home – at least the majority of it was lettuce so we did not over-indulge too much.
I have managed about 5 hours of broken sleep in the past 30 hours so once we get to Washington, we will be catching a taxi to our accommodation, having a shower and hopefully a good night’s sleep.
Tomorrow is a new day and we will start sightseeing in Washington DC.
