January 27th was shaping up to be a really long day! It started in the morning, when we left Hobart for Sydney and Honolulu. Of course, nothing is ever easy, and we were stuck in a traffic jam for a good bit of the drive to the airport. But we did get there on time, and so the longest day ever began. We left Hobart at about 10:30 a.m. to fly to Sydney where we would wait for 7 hours for our next flight.
