SFO Layover

What a great flight we enjoyed from Sydney to San Francisco. We had two lovely flight attendants on the upper deck of our 747. Better yet, we both fell asleep after dinner and smust have managed six or seven hours.

Our flight had tailwinds and arrived about an hour early. Since we don't fly to London until tonight we considered going into San Francisco for the day. We've opted to staying here, first in the domestic terminal's United Club and later in the club located in the international terminal.

Clearing Immigration and Customs was a breeze, and re-entering through the TSA check point was relatively painless, even though we both chose to opt out of the scanners. The screeners were friendly and not too invasive.

If time permits, we'll start posting some photos later today. It's nice for now to sit with a good cup of coffee and relax.


  1. Hey Brian and Kathy,
    Great to see you have made your touch down in the US. It was wonderful to see you downunder again, and I trust you enjoyed your capital mansion - thanks for your hosting.
    Safe travels, JohnSydney2000

    1. It was a great pleasure for us, John. Hope to see you next year in Perth, if not sooner.
