In July 2007 I decided to pack my bags and take a break and ship out to Melbourne, Australia. I went there to get away from London and simply to gain life experience. However I thought I’d bring back with me something, a Private Pilot License.
My journey began at Heathrow airport on a very cold January evening. I had booked to fly with China Eastern, ever heard of them? I hadn’t until I found a cheap ticket at £800 return which I ended up losing! More on that later.
