|Soaked up our last few rays of sunshine before heading to the airport to board our 4.5 hr flight from cairns to auckland,nz. We only had a couple hours here before catching our 13 hr flight to Vancouver. We are currently sitting in the van airport, waiting to catch our flight to Calgary and then finally to Edmonton. We are pretty exhausted, as we didn't get too much sleep on the plane! It was quite turbulent, waking us up often if we did manage to fall asleep. I kept thinking that surely all of this turbulence would even disturb the very loud snorer sitting behind us, but he somehow managed to power through most of it.
