Me, Racing Stripes

Arc planning

Hmm.

Currently I'm thinking of just doing the short trip, Wednesday the 25th to either Tuesday the 31st or Wednesday the 1st (probably the later).

Why? Well, I went shopping last night with ozisim and gomino who are up visiting from Sydney. The discussion went to a lot of strange topics, including Mardi Gras, and there looks to be a fairly good chance that I will be going to Sydney in February/March next year to go to Mardi Gras.

I've wanted to go to Mardi Gras for a while, so this looks like it could be a lot of fun! :)

Edit: I've just booked the flights. Wednesday 25 Jan, 12:05 to 15:20 on Virgin Blue flight 324 and Wednesday 1 Feb 14:00 to 15:05 on Virgin Blue flight 323 for a total of $202. The joys of daylight savings. The flight down is "three hours", while the flight back is "only an hour".

Can't wait.
