to oz i go go* 



Well, whaddya know. It’s been six good months since my Indian trip and my sorry ass is itching so bad, even a dozen Zentol won’t help. And I doubt it has anything to do with worms. Methink me got bitten by the travel bug again.

And as I mentioned before, God has been very good and I have been blessed abundantly. Hallelujah! Though I had initially pushed my Aussie trip to 2007, life’s great twist turned it around and pushed the plan back in gear to this year. So off I will go in mid May. For 18 days. Glee.

I must say this is a rather ambitious solo trip. The trip will cover 3D3N Gold Coast -5D5N Sydney - 6D5N Melbourne - 4D4N Alice Springs /Uluru (Ayer’s Rock). Budget will be super tight, but I think I’ll manage. I hope. I pray. All my accommodations are covered as I’ll be bunking with friends who have migrated there, except for Alice Springs and Uluru, where I will book into some youth hostel. [Aiyo, gotta check if I can still be classified under the “youth” bracket. 42 years still youthful what! No meh?]

Some of the things I really want to do are:
o Gold Coast – Drive the BatMobile to the horizon. With Keith Urban. [Ya, right!]
o Sydney – Visit Blue Mountain, take a jet boat ride along the Opera House, shop at Paddington Market and hike up the Sydney Harbour Bridge at night.
o Melbourne – Take a slow ride along Great Ocean Road, shop at St. Kilda market and meet up with a couple of girlfriends and doing lots of cooking. Also visit one or two museums. Seek job opportunity.
o Alice Springs & Uluru – Hike up and around Ayer’s Rock, star gazing in the desert and buy an Aborigine art piece. Maybe, just maybe, hire a Harley ride.

Here’s where you can help - If you have any idea how to travel to Alice Springs to and from Melbourne by bus or flight or train, please drop me your advice. Or if you have any other suggestion of what else I can do on this trip, drop me a line too. Places to eat. Places to visit. Nice gigs. Anything.

Thanks mushily in advance.
