On my way from Detroit to LAX, I got to know Aubrey and Rachel who both had Quiznos subs for dinner. Me on the other hand, only had my crummy Strawberry Yogurt Bar. You really have to bring your own food when travelling, otherwise you might starve on connecting flights. For my longer LAX to Brisbane stretch, I was fortunate to be seated next to Terry Chapman and his wife, Sharon. They were returning from their Las Vegas vacation back to Tangalooma Wild Dolphin Resort where they live and work. The island resort sounds really fun, since you get to stay next to the beach where the bottleneck dolphins can get real close. By 8am today, I was finally on solid ground. Taking the Brisbane airport bus to my hotel costs A$11, and I got to see parts of the city at the same time. Once at Brisbane Marriott, I showered up and headed out for lunch and a bit of sightseeing.
