Day 1. So far, so good.

Made it to Melbourne without any troubles as you would expect. A minor scare at Hobart airport when I put my helmet through the scanner. Just before it went the security officer grabbed it and asked,"Is this a helmet?"
"Yes", I replied fearing the worst as the flight had been called. "Put it in a tray to stop it rolling off the end of scanner".
Scare averted and thanks to the helpful security guy.
A day in Melbourne then hit the airport this afternoon for our flight to Dubai. The helmet saga continues again through international departures.
