Back to Australia

For the first time in this trip, I have changed my general direction of travel. I am no longer heading West, but backwards East, starting the third and last trip around the globe.

Fewer stops this time – only Australia, Chile, Argentina and Brussels. But still a full circle.

I figured I had lost two full days of this trip by jumping over the international date line in the wrong direction, so this time I try to get at least one day back!

So tomorrow I’ll board two Emirates planes (one of the rare occasions I am not flying Star Alliance) and fly north to Dubai, then over the Indian Ocean to Western Australia’s capital, Perth.

Here are the details:
