flt closed

Flt Closed. Thats all I saw for both of my flights to Melbourne and back on the weekend.

On my way down there, I arrived at the airport about 20 minutes before the flight took off and had to rush through check-in and security, and was extremely lucky that the Gate I had to find was just around the corner from the security check point.

On the way back I wasn't so lucky.

The Melbourne Sky Bus (shuttle bus) took about 30 mins to get to the airport. So yet again, I was late. But this time it was worse, I arrived at the airport just 15 mins before scheduled take-off time.

And the Gate this time, was one of the furtherest Gates away in the airport. So I ran all the way there in my heels.

I made it through though. Just. Although I think I promised away my first born child whilst running to the gate. I swear I will never leave it this late to get to the Airport again. Ever.

Oh.. and I think I need to get a new pair of heels. These were definately not made to withstand a 5 minute run. Will post up more photos once I have the chance to download them from my mobile.
