First Time Flyer...

A last minute decision to join my friend on a trip to visit her sister in Coolangatta, Queensland ended up being a great idea! She was working (hairdresser) on the Saturday, so I hopped on a train and met her at her salon for a quick haircut, and then we hopped back on a train to the airport.
It was exciting because it was Chantelle's first time in a plane! But everything that could have happened, DID happen to her - her bag was too big for carry on luggage, she had to walk through the metal detector 3 times (ended up being studs on her jeans), then was stopped for a random explosive check - and then stopped and told she couldn't take her coffee on the plane! She was so nervous by the time she got into her seat...I couldn't stop laughing my head off at the time though.
So we're on the plane and asked for headphones for the radio but they're $3 each!! So we went without, until I had the great idea that maybe her iPod headphones would fit - low and behold...they did (so all you iPod-ers out there, don't buy headphones...use your own!).
