I have looked forward to this trip for so long. I haven’t visited Tokyo for 5 years and I’ve missed both my favourite city and my best friend so badly! We have had so many adventures together. You know, I’ve made so many great friends working as a flight attendant but I have never met anyone else like you.
Your mum has asked me to make sure you’re eating well, and your dad has asked me to find you a nice husband while I’m here! Ha ha!
I haven’t mastered Japanese yet (though I’ve studied it for 3 years now!) but I have improved enormously. I have practiced it at every available opportunity today, but I have made a few mistakes already!
By the way, the airline has lost my bags!  So QANTAS has given me the perfect excuse to go shopping.
Call me!

I Still Call Australia Home

I've been to cities that never close down,
from New York to Rio and old London town,
but no matter how far or how wide I roam,
I still call Australia home.

I'm always travelIing, I love being free,
and so I keep leaving the sun and the sea,
but my heart lies waiting over the foam,
I still call Australia home.

All the sons and daughters spinning 'round the world,
away from their family and friends,
but as the world gets older and colder,
it's good to know where your journey ends.
Someday we'll all be together once more,
when all of the ships come back to the shore,
Ill realise something I've always known,
I still call Australia home.

but no matter how far or wide I roam,
I still call Australia I still call Australia, I still call Australia home.
but no matter how far or wide I roam,
I still call Australia I still call Australia, I still call Australia home.
