Leaving on a Jetplane...Don't Know When I'll be back again...?? Helloi there!! This journal is for my friends and fam so they can track my progress across the globe. Even though you can't be with me, hopefully by reading my journal you can come along for the ride in some kind of weird internet sense...lol. Anyway I will try to update this as much as possible however those who know me best will probably find this is just a pipe dream!! Well I have the best of intentions at least to keep you all informed of my where-a-bouts, if only to make you sickly jealous and hopefully this might even get your butts on a jetplane and meet me somewhere that takes your fancy!! Here's hoping anyway!! Love you all and I will miss all your gutses terribly... meowfromkate xox

Flight from Hell!!

USA | Sunday, 31 December 2006 | Views [629] | Comments [2]

Well you'll be pleased to know I arrived in New York safe...sound however is another story!! Half way through my flight to LA from Sydney I was struck down with a stomache bug and spent the rest of flight (still a good 6 hours) in the toilet projectile vomiting!! That was bad enough but then arrived in LA only to be met with a two hour long wait in customs. I had a connecting flight to New York at 8am and I was still in the line at 8.30am..luckily so was half the plane so they held up the flight for us...once on the plane the captain came over the speaker to inform his passengers that there would be a further delay because the baggage conveyor that puts the bags in the plane had just broken causing half the luggage to fall off onto the ground!!! Hence when I got to JFK airport my backpack did not make it!! A further hour and a half wait at JFK in between being sent from one end of JFK airport to the other (this airport has it's own train system it's that big!!) to try and locate my luggage, I finally was reunited with my long lost and yet essential item of my trip....WHAT THE HELL IS BACKPACKING WITHOUT A BACKPACK??

Well it's new years eve tomorrow I gotta go to bed and get some sleep in...catch you next year!!

Love Kate xox

Hey Kate - you sure paint a graphic picture - it was so bad it was funny! - I look forward to reading more descriptions. Keep searching for a good beer, Love Jo

Hi Kate I agree with Jo afterwards makes a good story but it must have been a nightmare.
I have yet to see snow - but its not so hot here now.
In the low to mid 20's this week but Comet McNaught in
the western sky just on sunset has been specky.
Love Janice
