So, this past March/April I went to Australia for a month. I meant to write about the experience before now, and here I am finally getting around to it.
Basically, to TL;DR it, it was the best holiday I’ve ever had. Not that there was a high bar for it to leap over; the best holidays I’ve probably had before that were probably caravanning in Anstruther or down in Dumfriesshire when I was a kid.
However, you probably want to hear more detail about it, don’t you? Well, let’s crack on.
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.

It’s been a while since I properly wrote something on here. How are you? I apologise in advance for the general scattyness of this piece, it’s mostly me getting my thoughts down on ‘paper’ and getting a bit of discussion/feedback going from friends/followers who have more travel experience than myself.
So, let’s get to the point. Next year, I’m going to go to Australia for a month. Mostly in and around Perth, but I’m also planning to nip across the subcontinent for 4-5 days to see the sights of Sydney.
Here’s the real head trip – it’ll be the first time I’ll have been abroad since 1992 and my first ever air travel experience (the first and previous time I was abroad, I went to France via Holland and Belgium on a ferry). No better way to acclimatise myself to air travel than to spend 20+ hours in planes, right? Just as well I don’t have a fear of flying – far from it. Hell, I used to harbour ambitions of being a fighter pilot as a kid. Then I discovered that I needed glasses, and as it turns out, I don’t really do well with the whole military discipline thing, so that wouldn’t’ve worked out all that well anyway…
