Two years in the planning and we are finally at the Melbourne International Airport awaiting our flight. We all made it to the airport safely; some on the ‘Party Bus’, some with family members and all with gigantic smiles on our faces. We are about to embark on the most amazing journey in the band’s 134 year history, and how lucky we are to be part of this historic tour. Our flight has been delayed until 12.10am, but alas, there are plenty of cold beverages to be had. We have been sorted into five transit groups for travel and there is already a strong competition to see which group can organise itself and transit most efficiently through the airport (go pink team!) So far, Harry has been frisked, Jacqueline smashed her drink, Brad and Kathy were checked for bombs, and Dave…. where’s Dave?
We would like to sincerely thank all our sponsors, supporters, family members and committee for the outstanding work to turn this dream into reality, and also to you, our readers, for following our blog and supporting us on our UK/France ‘Tour of Remembrance’ 2015. See you in London!
