Left Toronto at 6:30pm on Tuesday August 14. Flew 5ish hours to LA and made it right on time to my next flight. Had to get from Terminal 2 to Terminal 7. Glad I had a two hour "layover"...
Then began my 14 hour flight to Sydney. As I got settled into my seat, I prayed that the two empty spots between me and another man would stay empty, and then did. This was excellent. I full-on stretched out my legs for almost the entire flight, and slept for most of it. I was amazed! Put in my headphones when we took off and woke up like 5 hours later and had been listening to the same Jesus Culture album the entire time. Haha spirit foooooooood. Love it. Woke up and a discovered that I only had an hour to go. There weren't any personal TVs on this flight, so I was pretty glad to have slept through most of it.
Landed in Sydney and made my way to the next gate for my final flight to Melbourne.
My au pair family picked me up at the airport and we went back to their home in Sandringham, about 40 mins from the airport. Here's a couple shots of their beautiful home. You can definitely tell that they lived in Sweden for a while. I sometimes feel like I'm living in IKEA :)
Rest of the house:
MOST delicious yogurt:
Their Keeshond named cody.
Walking the dog...
Australian homes have the neatest mailboxes!
Words cannot describe its nastiness...
