Highlights From Sunrise + Flight Centre's Round The World Adventure

21 September 2015

Struggled to get out of bed this morning? You're not the only one! Just 24 hours after touching down in Sydney after four consecutive flights, it was back to reality and the Channel 7 studios for the Sunrise team.

In case you missed it, Sunrise and Flight Centre rewrote television history last week, broadcasting Channel 7's early morning show live from five countries in five days. Kochie, Sam and the team managed just an entree-sized taste of Dubai, London, New York, Niagara Falls and Cancun, staying little more than a few hours in some locations before boarding their next plane.

Somewhere along the way, the morning broadcast turned into the 'amazing race' as the team navigated delays, oversold flights, customs queues, and missing bus drivers. Luckily, Flight Centre's Sally and Millie were on the ground to tackle logistical nightmares and, along with the whole Sunrise crew behind the scenes, managed to pull off the trip of a lifetime.

Check out the daily behind the scenes wrap-ups of Sunrise and Flight Centre's Round The World adventure below.

When I'm not at home in Brisbane, you’ll find me wanderlusting around hipster bars, eclectic boutiques and arty nooks. From bagels in Brooklyn to strudel in Salzburg, I believe the best way to experience a destination is by taking a bite! Tweets & 'grams at @AshtonRigg
