Dubai Transit #1 | Melbourne | Sydney Part 1 | Sydney Part 2 | Perth | Dubai Transit #2


Everything was a bit of a blur on arrival at Perth, but the taxi in allowed some easy logging on a remote parking area used mainly by day-stopping freighters - it seemed a very large airfield with an international terminal set some distance away with a Learjet and Falcon 900 outside. There was no opportunity or indeed will to explore the north end of the domestic terminal.

I then spent two days in Perth - which appeared to be a beautiful place, almost Southern California-ish but much quieter and more pleasant - again in bed, apart from a morning spent in hospital !.

Again it was somewhat difficult to get prepared for another long flight, but late on the Tuesday night we departed Australia back to Dubai, my only goals being to get a row of seats to lie flat on for the eleven hour flight, and to get the Tiger Airways Singapore A.320 that I knew was a late night visitor.
