Day 1 – Travelling over the South Pole

Our day started when we woke at 4.30am to go to the airport.   We were flying via Sydney to Buenos Aires.  We were lucky to be upgraded to Premium Economy before we left.  And then when our video screens in our seats did not work we were moved into the lie flat Sky Beds in business class.  This was perfect.   I was also quite surprised to find that there were not many people were on this 747 at all.

We both got a few hours sleep on the way over and were well prepared to start running about the city when we arrived.   A lot of Italian people live here in Buenos Aires so Frank is able to communicate with them.   I on the other hand have no knowledge of Spanish or Italian.

Being tired when we arrived we decided to take it easy and head over to the Abasto shopping centre to have some lunch and buy some good walking shoes.   I’ve also organised for us to have a walking tour during the week and go to the San Telmo markets on Sunday.

It’s 1am here right now and I am wide awake so I hope I adjust to the time zone quickly.  Here are a couple of snaps of Frank and I on QF17 to Buenos Aires.
