And so this fantastic trip has come to an end. We rose early, and jumped into our car waiting to take us to the airport for the flight home. This might be a good time to mention motor vehicles here in Abu Dhabi..the car to the airport was a 7 series BMW, one of many here. When we arrived here I made the comment to Fi that in the first one hour in Abu Dhabi I had seen more Porsches than I had in my whole life to that time!!! Bentley Continental GT’s, Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Maserati’s, Aston Martin’s, Audi’s, Merc’s, BMW’s and …Holden Commodore’s!
We checked in for our 14 hour flight home and we had been upgraded to Business Class…wooohooo! Thru customs and into the lounge, breakfast and onto the plane for the flight home. The flight was great, we were able to get some reasonable sleep, were well fed and watered and touched down in Sydney around 7.10 am on Saturday morning. Off the plane, thru customs, collected our bags, out and into a cab and home all within 45 minutes, a world record!
