We’re supposed to fly home on June 19, but we just received an email from Virgin Australia announcing that our flight from Adelaide to Sydney has been cancelled. In fact, they’ve cancelled ALL their flights between the two cities.
So now we have to figure out our next step. Do we (1) Fly from Adelaide to Melbourne to Sydney and risk that one of those flights get cancelled? (2) Just say, “What the hell” and take the two-day drive from Angaston to Sydney?
Driving comes with its own set of problems. No one seems to know what the regulations are when crossing state lines. I stopped at the police station in Nuriootpa assuming that they’d know the rules. Not a chance. They actually told me, “We know what the regulations are when you’re coming into South Australia, but we don’t know what Victoria’s regulations are when you’re leaving South Australia.”
