Walkabout 18…The Long Flight Home…

We had a great adventure on our Walkabout but unfortunately, all things must come to an end.

We had a great adventure on our Walkabout but unfortunately, all things must come to an end.
Bora Bora, New Zealand, and Australia were all amazing and we were so grateful that we could experience it.

On our return flight, the plane’s seating was 3,3,and 3 which means that we would have to sit next to somebody ! 
Sooo… we came up with a plan that we hoped would work.
We would get seats at the bulkhead for some legroom. Then we booked the two aisle seats in hopes that someone would not b
ook the middle seat.

Sounded like a great plan.

At least we thought so…

As we boarded the plane we could not wait to get to our seats to see if our great plan would work.

Yeah Right !!

When we rounded the bulkhead we were met by a gentleman sitting right in the middle seat.

Okay, we thought, we’ll just ask him if would like the aisle seat and with the bulkhead seats we still had a lot of legroom. Not so Bad.

Yeah Right !!

This was going to be a long flight,13 hrs, and with the in flight entertainment we had plenty of movies to watch and I also had a book to read. Should be an easy ride.

Yeah Right !!

After a couple of hours on the plane and dinner, our traveling companion got a suitcase down from storage and informed us that he was going to set up his

“C-Pac” machine so he could get some sleep.
Then he requested a bassonet holder to be attached to the bulkhead to hold his device.

This really made the trip very uncomfortable.

The bassonet holder was positioned in the middle of our three seats and really restricted our space.
The funny thing about this, was that he really did not get a whole lot of sleep during the flight.
His machine only served to irritate his fellow passengers.

We promised ourselves after the flight, that we would never book a long flight that did not have 2 seats by themselves.

We finally landed in LA, but we still had another 3 hour flight to get back to KC and home.

We had a awesome trip but we were really ready to get back to our own beds.

It was a long trek and lots of great memories. The experience and the 3,000+ pictures I took will take alot of time to sort out !.
