I had a quick visit to Sydney this week to apply for my Finnish passport. Finally it's on it's way!
I booked flights to allow plenty of time to spare in case of a delay - I didn't want to go all the way to Sydney and run out of time to do what I went there for. As it turned out I needn't have worried. I got a text message from Qantas saying my flight home had been cancelled and I should ring to re-schedule. The passport dealing had already been done so I changed to an earlier flight. Perfect!
