Up, Up and Away

Posted on

As you might have guessed by the title, those lovely little dates on the booking calendar have been bolded and we have now booked our flights. We had some family discussion about splitting the lenth of the flights and flying Brisbane – Singapore – Dubai – Manchester but in the end decided against it, so these will be our flights with Emirates –
Thursday 28 November – Depart Brisbane 8-45pm
Friday 29 November – Arrive Dubai 5-20am (Flight time 14hrs 35mins)
2 hour layover in Dubai
Friday 29 November – Depart 7-20am
Friday 29 November – Arrive Manchester 11-20am (Flight time 8 hrs)
All of our travel in England and Europe will be by train.
We will have our last night in Salzburg following our snow day and sleigh ride on Christmas Day. Following breakfast we will take the train to Munich whch is about one and a half hours and then train to the airport.
Thursday 26 December – Depart Munich 2-25pm
Thursday 26 December – Arrive Dubai 11-15pm (Flight time 5hrs 50 mins)
We will then have four nights and three days in the warmth of Dubai. We are just waiting on confirmation of our hotel booking and hope to not only see the sights but also relax a little before the flight home which will be
Monday 30 December – Depart Dubai 10-25am
Tuesday 31 December – Arrive Brisbane 6-40am (Flight time 14 hrs 15 mins)
Of course with customs and baggage we should be home mid morning. Somehow I think New Years Eve will not be a big celebration for 2013/2014.
I would love your tips for reducing jet lag and any tips for Dubai and other places we are visiting.
