Yes, you read that right. We are on a flight. Completing the full trip home still seems uncertain but maxed cards later we are on a plane.
After waiting in line for hours a Flight Centre worker came down the line offering business class flights leaving today via Japan. We had minutes to consider it as it was leaving in less than two hours. We spoke to parents, tried to weigh up options. And decided to risk it.
The Flight Centre worker typed at lightning speed. We ran for the shuttle bus to the domestic terminal. And now I am writing from the plane so don’t have long to write.
We are flying to Sydney, then to Tokyo then to London. We are praying Japan doesn’t cancel their flights before we board in Sydney. We are praying nothing more stops us from getting home. We are praying we have made the right decision.
- Stay safe
- Stay isolated/social distance where you can
- Keep washing hands and sanitising
- Most importantly be kind to others
