Australia Part One:We saw Heaven! (the trip)

Hi everyone! we're back from the other end of the world! We hope you had a great holiday. Our short stay in Australia was full of lovely surprises and there has been so many photos taken that we are going to show it to you in 3 parts.:The trip, walking in Sydney and the wedding.

At Heathrow airport, we heard a very strange noise in the hand luggage. It was Rosy! she didn't want us to leave without her so she managed to hide in a bag! Surprise!Aliénore was over the moon!

Then we got on the plane. Once up in the sky, we discovered what Heaven looked like! Unfortunately, we saw no angels.

Aliénore couldn't stop looking at the clouds and the tiny landscape. She was wondering how many dolls were living down there as she suddenly realised how big the world was.

The dolls had an immense success amongst the crew who took great care of them all along the 23hour long journey.

On the plane we were sitting next to Trudy and Jeremy who were going to Australia to get married. They were such wonderful travel companions. They always kept a good eye on us and even helped us find stuff that we let fall down on the floor or slip under the seat. Jeremy had a pocket lamp and it was soooooo handy! Trudy was very funny and thought Aliénore looked very cute in her dress.

Then, after about 11hours trip, we arrived in Thailand.

Aliénore is showing the position of the plane on her individual screen.We had a big big thought for all the blog friends who live around this part of the world.

Rosy couldn't believe her eyes!

We didn't stay very long in Bangkok.
Long enough to admire the beautiful orchids.
It was very hot and humid.

Then back to the plane. We took off and after 9 long hours, we arrived in Australia.
At last!

It was hard to say whether it was morning or evening. The dolls felt sleepy all the time.
They fell asleep at one in the afternoon as their little eyes could no longer stay open.

There is no word to describe what I felt when I saw my sister at the airport. After 5 looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong years, we were reunited again.
Ok...on the photo below, we don't look happy but, he!he! this is one of the numerous pics we took trying hard to look like superstars! If we had had recorded an album, the cover might exactly look like this!

Life is such a strange thing...

Tomorrow, the dolls and I will be happy to tell you about Sydney.

It is nice to be back on Blogland dear blog friends.
Hope you are all fine.

Difficile d'attendre la suite de ton voyage...
Le premier épisode est super, tes "filles" ont vraiment bien profité du voyage. J'adore les photos, entre autres, d'elles avec l'équipage.
Vivement la suite...

What fun for Alienore that Rosy was a stow-away! I cannot wait to hear more about your trip and I am so thankful you are home safe and sound and happy ♥

When I saw you had left a comment on my blog I knew you were back and I rushed over to see what you had posted :-) It is wonderful when you are up above the clouds, I love to get a window seat on a plane. I am looking forward to the next installment of your journey.

Are you curious about me? said...

Hi Patricia

So glad that you had a wonderful time at your sister's wedding, you are like two peas in a pod, two beautiful girls just like Aliénore and that cute stowaway Rosy.
