Heading Home

Sunday 17 – Monday 18 January 2016

Our little sojourn in Malaysia has come to an end.  This afternoon we are on an Air Asia flight 16:15 from Penang to Kuala Lumpur (1 hour flight) and then continuing on at 21:40 getting into Gold Coast at 07:50 (8 hour flight).  Its going to be a long night.

After a hearty breakfast we check out of our rooms and head to the gardens to spend our last hours relaxing under the palm trees.

The journey is unexceptional and everything goes as one expects from Air Asia, as far as budget carriers go they are pretty good.

Back in Australia and through customs and quarantine we debate how to return to Brisbane.  We are pretty tired after the overnight flight so decide to Uber back to Brisbane.  Luckily we get a roomy Chrysler 300, the driver is quite surprised when we tell her our destination.  After a brief pause she happily says “Oh I’ll have to call my husband and tell him that I’m going to be a while and he will have to catch an Uber to his meeting.”
