On Wednesday 29 July Lena arrived at Tullamarine after a harrowing journey over 48 Hours. She was welcomed by Telsa, Mark and Peter.
Her flight from Toulouse was delayed and consequently she missed her connection in London.  After rebooking her on another flight the next day British Airways provided her with a Hotel room.  It was a new experience to be in London and an anxious wait for the next day and to again arrive at Heathrow to board her flight half way around the world.  The flight was via Singapore arrovomg at Sydney.  At Sydney she had to make her way to the Domestic terminal and board another flight to Melbourne. 
Now because Sydney was not her original plan of course her luggage did not arrive with her.  Another obstacle!  Fortunately a quick visit to Luggage services at Tulla. She was assured that it would be delived to her new home that same day.   True to their word it was delivered by courier that evening.   
She has settled in now and with a number of initial administrative things done she is now looking forward to starting school at Oberon.
Also attending her first Rotary Meeting on Tuesday where all the club members are looking forward to meeting her.
