Silly time of the morning to have to get up, but the 6:00 Flight means we will arrive in Argentina the same day we Leave Australia. So we get up pack and go stand downstairs in the cold waiting for the shuttle to take us to the airport.
Check in is quick and bags checked to Sydney.
Flight is on Time and we board our Flight to Sydney

Land at Sydney and collect our bags, then onto International terminal and join the long queues for checkin. After that we have a few hours to kill before our flight to Santiago Chile. The Excitement is beginning to mount as I have always wanted to go to Argentina but not sure why?
Our Flight is called we shuffle on board and prepare for the next 17 hours of trying to sleep watching anything eating and drinking whatever offered
Long haul flights are awful but needed.

Welcome to Chile !
The Flight was not that Bad and we both slept some Our Luggage is checked through to BA so no need to collect them, instead we head into the Food Court at Santiago Airport. we do not have to wait too long before our flight is called and we are about to Cross the Andes to our final Destination on this leg of the Trip Buenos Aries.
