Another from me

We woke up at 5am to get ready for breakfast at 6, to leave for the airport by 6.30 I bought an eggnog latte at Starbucks and we boarded the plane at 8.30am. There was no food served on board, only complimentary drinks. We landed at 4.20pm, having flown east, balmy 23C. We hired a medium sized (Chrysler)  car with gps and started our journey to find the hotel. After numerous false starts and redirects, much frustration we stopped at Sea Breeze, Summer Bay resorts. Our hotel had closed it’s doors 2 weeks previously. Now they may have tried to contact us but we were on board the ship then and declined all private calls. After more waiting and phonecalls we learnt our new hotel, the Ramada Heritage was closed for a private function as it was the 31st! We booked into the Sea Breeze. I organised us pizzas from Pappa Joe’s, served by a very stroppy young girl. We had all managed 10 hours without anything to eat, talk about being hungry and stressed, yet surprisingly very well behaved. We rested a bit and then set off for Disney’s Magic Kingdom at 10.30pm. We didn’t have tickets and couldn’t get anywhere close, but the fireworks were amazing. We watched the countdown with 100s of others and then suddenly it was 2011.
