Not seen any scenery yet - it is currently 0520hrs here in NZ (and raining) but the final flight to Australia should be in daylight. We crossed the international dateline - and lost September 4th. We pick up a day on our return, so I guess that it will be a bit of a groundhog day! Also found out that Adelaide is the only (or one of the only) timezones that is a half hour out - not a full hour. Will look that up later, have only got 30mins WiFi here . . . .
And here is a quick pic of our chariot!
