Wouldn't you know it? This is our first visit to Sydney that actually coincides with the amazing Vivid Sydney display of lights and it's too rainy to venture out to view it.
We savored our last breakfast at the Surfers Paradise Hilton this morning, said our goodbyes to various fellow Flyertalk friends at the hotel and the airport, and flew back to Sydney on a Qantas 737, a 90-minute flight complete with hot mini-meal.
We shared an Uber with Bo, a Flyertalk friend on our flight, and checked in at the Hilton Executive Lounge about 3:00 p.m.
After a few nights in that four-bedroom suite, we'd forgotten how small a hotel room can be. Still, it's cozy and comfortable.
We've enjoyed the Happy Hour (actually two hours) in the lounge, and the food offerings were good enough that this will be dinner.
We'll see what tomorrow brings, but the agenda for tonight is catching up on our sleep.
