On our way for our Bali adventure

Sydney - Monday 4/12/78 - cloudyDue to the air strike due to commence at midnight tonight we flew to Sydney with TAA tonight instead of tomorrow morning. We left at 6.45 pm. At the airport to see us off were Mum, Dad, the boys, the Petersons, Ramseys, Caroline, Andrew, Coop, Liz and Dave. It was quite a tearful departing. We stayed with Frank and Fay Ramsey for the night. Poor Brad was sick so he went to bed early. However, I was kept up until 2 am talking.Sydney - Tuesday 5/12/78 cloudy and coolToday we were supposed to leave at 10 am. We rang up Qantas and they said our flight would leave even though there was a strike. We caught a cab to the international airport and got there at 11 am. The departure board said we were boarding at 12.30 and leaving at 1.30. At 12 o’clock all flights were delayed. We both slept intermittently curled up on a chair. At 4 pm they announced that our flight was cancelled until tomorrow. Feeling tired and angry we went back to Frank and Fay’s to spend another night.
