Greetings, fellow interweb denizens. Some of you may recall I wrote a thing on here a few months back cataloguing my planning thoughts about what was, at that point, a distant plan to travel to Australia for an extended holiday. Now, some 10 months after writing that post, I sit here a few days out from getting on the plane. So, what’s happening, how did my plans change, for better or worse? Let’s do this using the same section headers I used in the original post and compare my original plans to how things panned out.
