Monday 1st of August 2016 and my alarm went off at 7 and I received my wake-up call a minute later. I started to kill time looking up birds on the internet and suddenly it was time to go for breakfast. I had planned to go to the marina to have a look at the different Cormorants there. But suddenly it was 10 minutes before 9 and I had to pack and got o check-out.

Breakfast, today it was a new girl and when I entered the restaurant she rolled out a smoking Aurora Ozone Hotel in Kingscotetoaster on a table. The toaster needs to run the bread 2 times for them to get toasted. And same for me yesterday, the second time the bread start to smoke.

What is it with Australian and to keep up with the time? Itis like UK back in the 80's. All the hotels have a note to close the door when showering or the fire alarm will go off. It is not the 70's anymore!

Like when I told one gay that I had been doing safaris in the Indian jungle, I told him that there was no need for any adapters as the sockets took all the plugs available. And there were even USB connections for charging stuff. And there were internet
- Here you have to run around like we were back in 1977
- This is Australia

Excellent argument, you should take care of your traditions and heritage, but it doesn’t mean that we cannot have electricity and internet. Actually, most of the hotels in India and most of the other hotels don't require adapters to plug in your laptop etc.

Anyway, I took my seat and I asked for a pot of tea
- You can take tea at the tea station
- I want a pot
- We don't have
- I have had my breakfast here now for I don't know how many days and I have had a pot of tea at my table every day
- Do you want me to get a pot of tea for you?
- Please, I would be grateful
- What kind of tea?
- Earl Grey please.

She was soon all over me again, I had my normal 4 small sausages and 3 or 4 slices of bacon.
- You can only have continental breakfast
- What?
- Your room only have continental breakfast included?
- What the Yet another Smiley on is that? Toast?
- You have to pay 10 dollars to upgrade the breakfast

I handed her 10 dollars and she was soon gone to the toaster to give instructions to some other guests. I was ready in 10 minutes and I had a few minutes before the transportation to the Kingscote, Kangaroo Islandairport would arrive.

It was a beautiful morning and I could see one Black-faced Cormorant swimming outside the beach looking for food. I have had a gorgeous time here on Kangaroo Island, well, except for the waiting. But other than that it have been a wonderful two days touring the island.

And I got to see many koalas and finally, the last animal on my list, the Echidna. So I was very happy with my stay here.

The van came and there was only a Japanese girl on board. She was not going with a flight. She was going on a tour and she was coming with us to the airport as they had a few passengers to pick up. Then they would take off on the tour, but by then I would be on my way to Adelaide.

Finally on board

We had a nice ride to the airport. The driver, I asked if he was from Ireland, but he was from the USA. He had come here for a 3 day holiday and now he had been living here for 19 years. We had an interesting discussion about snakes.

Check-in was a disappointment. I had expected the flight to be almost empty after an empty airport shuttle. The girl at the check-in asked if I wanted a seat at the emergency exit.
- Obviously you speak English

One of the things required if you want to sit at the emergency exit. Another thing is that you're not allowed to have an extension on the life belt. But this might be allowed here and I took the chance with the emergency exit. But I was soon informed that it was not allowed to use extension at the emergency exit.

I stepped on board and I asked if they had an extension. I was informed that this was not allowed at the emergency exit. The Stewardess asked me to try without and it this was not possible I had to change seat. An embarrassment I can live without and I held my breath and I managed to close the safety belt.

It was a SAAB 640 or whatever they call the plane. And this was the best seat I have had on board a plane in economy class for a very long time.

We got out of the plane a few minutes after 11 o'clock. Transportation to REX terminal and I had my bag a few minutes later. My Qantas flight to Melbourne departs at 11:45 so I was in a hurry. And I have to change terminal to check-in to Qantas flight QF682. So let's see if I can make it in time, clock HERE to find out. One thing is for sure, I won't run to the terminal.
