Flying on Friday the thirteenth was always going to be interesting. We were 10 minutes from the landing strip on Lord Howe when the pilot turned back for Sydney due to bad visibility and strong winds. The next day we tried again but the flight was cancelled. This gave us a whole day as tourists in Sydney.
We finally arrived in Lord Howe on the third day, and made the most of this extraordinary place. Brilliant walks, amazing birdlife, good food, and very quiet!
