Monday morning was our travel home day.

Our flight did not leave Newcastle until 12:15pm so we were able to have a slow start to the day.

I had packed most of our things the night before, so really needed to do not much more than have a shower, breakfast and relax.

We checked out at 8:30 and double checked our reservation was correct when we are back at Christmas time. We then headed to the family to say a final goodbye to the kids and leave them with the little bit of grocery items we had left over.

An uneventful drive back to the airport, dropped the car off and waited for our flight. We were on the same kind of plane as our first flight. We departed on time and arrived at Brisbane airport at 12:30pm Brisbane time.

Back to the car, and another uneventful drive home arriving at about 2:30pm

We had run the fridge right down before we left so we needed to go shopping, so we did a big shop while we had the time.

We got home, put the groceries away, did a load of washing, had dinner and crashed into bed early 🙂
We had a lovely trip and now it is time to look forward to our next trip…

the next trip away will be at the end of December and we have planned to be back in Newcastle to see the family for a couple of days and then we are off to Adelaide for 9 days.
