Well we made it thru the first leg of the Trip. Dallas-Brisbane, Australia. This was the first time i have ever experienced a 16 hour flight. Not so bad really since we took off from Dallas at 10:00PM. It was relatively easy to sleep on the Qantas 747. WE have a two hour layover in Brisbane and then we are off to Auckland, New Zealand which is another 3 hour flight. We will land in Auckland 21 hours after we took off in Dallas.
