So I want to go to Australia. I figure, while I'm in the hemisphere, might as well. Plus, there are these ads they've been showing a lot recently with all of these really convincing visual reasons to go to Sydney, specifically. And airline commercials advertising really low fares to a bunch of cities in Australia.
The problem here, I have decided, will not be money. I haven't actually earned enough at the apple thing to finance that kind of excursion the way it ought to be done, but I fully plan to make use of my credit card and not worry about it. No, the problem is going to be . . . I really don't have a freakin' clue how to go about planning the whole thing. As in, I just don't know anything about Australia, so I don't know which parts I want to visit or what I want to see. And guidebooks are just too expensive. (OK, so money is still a bit of an issue.)
I'm thinking that I ought to try to hook up with a trip like the one I took around New Zealand when I first got here- with the bus and the camping and the pre-determined itinerary. I'm sure they have that kind of thing over there. I guess I'll just have to do some internet-ing and hope I come up with good ideas. (Or maybe someone who lives in the place might have a suggestion or two?)
In other news, my new place is actually very cool. It's a sleepout, which means that I'm separate from the main house, attached to the garage, with my own bathroom and little kitcheny area. I'm the first one ever to stay in it, too, so I got to set everything up the way I want it. It's very cute. Moving, however, has really brought to my attention the fact that I have way too freakin' many belongings than can be comfortably carried around by a backpacker, so before I start moving again I shall have to unload quite a lot of stuff. Drat. I sense a large postage charge in my future.
