Try and picture that scene from Titanic where Jack Dawson and his foregin friend get tickets and board the vessel seconds before as it was about to depart. Now combine that image with the image of a couple of contestants on the "Amazing Race" sprinting with their packs, along a port.
Today that was Sarah and I.
To catch a blue star ferry you are required to be at the vessel an hour before departure. Our ferry left at 7.35. We arrived at our port (sprinting form the train station) at 7.30. They had closed the boarding platform. They were ready to go. And then us Aussies rocked up. Panting like dogs, red faced and tickets in hands. I cannot emphasise how relieved we were. (And still are.) We had gotten up at 5.45am to catch this ferry and we were still so freaking close to missing it.
If only someone had filmed us.
SO MUM, DON'T FREAK OUT IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM US.
