Central America Caribbean » Panama » Panamá December 27th 2014

Geo: 8.95102, -79.5521.......I will finally see the family again!Today I am flying solo to Orlando, Florida via Dallas, Texas where I will meet up with Celina, Sophie and Emma at Disney World. I expect to land at about 20:30 27/12/14The first part of this journey is on QF7 and is 13802 kilometres and will take 15 hrs 20 minutes! On an Airbus A380-800. This is the longest non-stop flight in the world. The A380-800 is a monster. It claims to be 50% quieter than any other and uses 17% less fuel. It carries some 350,000 litres.Having woken at 530am and completed the last of the chores, I welcomed the Resort sitters to their accommodation for the next 33 days and went through all the what's and how's of the Resort's operations. They should have a great ... read more

South America » Uruguay December 26th 2014

Geo: -34.9339, -56.229After 3.5 weeks in and around Mendoza catching up with my South American family and friends the kids and I are off to Disney World in Orlando. Yip! Yip! Yip!It's certainly going to take along time getting to Orlando. We travel from Mendoza to Buenos Aires, Argentina then to Montevideo, Uruguay, then to Panama City,Gulf of Mexico before continuing to Orlando, a total of 25 hrs in transit and 8819 kms. That's 352 km/hr so still quicker than driving, if you could!Our combined tickets (3 people) for this trip cost $US3357. A cheap fare! For about 4 times the cost we could have travelled twice as quick. (Shorter route). The benefit is obvious, save on the flight so I can shop in New York! YES! We left the apartment in Mendoza this morning at ... read more

Geo: -33.8671, 151.20725/12/14Update from DavidToday is Christmas Day 2014, have had a lovely day with my Dad and best friends Deb & Rick together with Lyn & Leane. Ha d a beautiful "Turducken" withe roast vegetables and the desert pictured.  Back home now having suffered yet another monster storm. Penny very frightened.  With just 43 hours before take off I have started to think about packing. Have some clothes out in a pile, suitcase is out, back pack cleaned up, but still bits n pieces everywhere. Keep think of things to do then forget again before I write them down.  Probably really settle down to packing when Dad goes tomorrow and I can finish a few last minute chores around the house, then relax & think much more clearly. Getting a bit excited now I have well and truly finished ... read more
