The Petryk's Round-The-World Adventure 2007/2008 travel blog


We made our way back to Sydney's Kingford Smith Airport at 8:30 a.m. this morning and got in line to check in for our Air Tahiti Nui flight to Papeete, Tahiti. As we stood in line observing our fellow passengers, we noticed two familiar faces.........Pat and John Gillespie....friends of ours that we were to meet in Tahiti.....they had spent a week in Sydney visiting John's brother and unbeknownst to us were on the same flight to Papeete as us. We quickly had them join us in line and arranged to sit together on the flight so that we could have some company and catch up a bit on what's been going on at home. We crossed the International Date Line and arrived in Papeete at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday November 28, 2007......about eleven hours "before" we left Sydney, Australia the day before...... "neat"!!!! After clearing customs at Papeete's "Faaa" Airport we got a taxi and made our way to LeMeridien Hotel where Peter and Madeline Moolyk, other friends of ours were awaiting our arrival, unaware that we had Pat and John in tow.....after the shock of seeing the four of us arrive together had worn off, there were hugs all around and once we got checked in we retreated to Peter and Madeline's room to enjoy a glass of wine and catch up on the last six months......it was good to be together again with our good friends at last.......
