'We'll just glide, starry eyed'*

(*'Come Fly With Me' by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen)

At 9.10 tonight we depart on one of these....

...bound for Prague. A little journey of about twenty-five hours including the four hours stop over at Dubai Airport. We'll certainly be starry eyed by then.

We are travelling business class which according to Google images...

...will have us in little workplace like cubicles. I might suffer a Pavlov's dog reaction and revert to my work days by starting to send out memos and the minutes of meetings.

After three days in Prague we move on to Budapest from where we will cruise the rivers through to Amsterdam and finally on to four days in Paris before returning to Dubai and then Sydney.

Hopefully, I will be able to provide some blog updates whilst we are away. If not, I'll be back in mid June.


  1. Prauge, a city with a lot of trams and steep hills I think. Have fun.

  2. Have a super great trip, Victor! I wish I could meet you in a Paris café, but I'm afraid that's not in the stars this time. :(

  3. Have a wonderful trip !!!

    Emirates business class is WONDERFUL !!!

  4. I am curious - did the Google images shot and the reality match up? I need to book a business class flight, but there are so many bad reviews about all the airlines, I don't know what to choose.

  5. Yes Veronique, Emirates business class did look like the Google images, at least on their A380 aircraft.
