As my dedicated readers would know, Sweetie and I are about to embark for our Australian adventure! In less than a week we will be flying off to visit friends, family, and Richard Burton (as a 3m high 3D hologram).
So, what can we expect from our journey?
- Cooler weather! It's been really hot here (I'm sure Odyssey know's what I'm talking about!): We've averaged 99F for August so far, with 15+ days over 100F. Needless to say we're looking forward to some relief, and relief we shall get: The average maximums we're expecting on our trip are 65-70F... For a comparison, that's cooler than our minimums so far in August!
- The definition of irony... I'll be flying from American to Australia, and in the process I'll be missing out on cricket! How that works I'm not so sure, but there you have it.
- A different perspective: I'll get to see Australia, where I grew up, and things that I know through the eyes of my Sweetie. Part of what I love about her is the way she sees things, and I can't wait to see what she makes of my country (okay, so I don't own Australia, but you know what I mean!).
- Fun!! We have so much we're looking forward to: Family, friends, places from my past, good food, an anniversary, and a few days in Sydney at the end of our trip just for the two of us!
We can't wait!
