- My Holiday Travel Plans
Why yes, indeed I am. I've already taken one, to Adelaide, just this past weekend. Admittedly, I went there because I have been there once before, and absolutely LOVED it. The weather was hot and sunny, the city was VERY photogenic, and I was taken around the city by a good mate who was very proud of the city where he grew up.
This time around, it was a bit different. One of the reasons I went was to meet a heap of people I have been chatting to on Twitter. (They don't know this, until now... cos I know they'd be reading this and all...) Might I just say, they are ALL even more awesome than I imagined. No bitchiness or backstabbing others behind their backs... all the tweeps in Adelaide seemed to really get along nicely. This was highlighted when a few of us were having drinks at The Exeter, and more and more people just randomly walked by and joined us. I can't say that this has ever happened in Melbourne... Despite my visit coinciding with the COLDEST December day since the mid 1980's, I still had an awesome time. THANK YOU ALL!
My next trip will be with favourite over the x-mas/new year break. We will be heading out to Daylesford for a few days. We had such a great time there that we will be going there again over the same period. CANNOT. WAIT! (Yes, even though it will be cold enough to snow... in the middle of summer, according to the latest forecast... will be able to put the romantic fireplace to good use...)
After this, I am heading up to north Queensland. Yes. North Queensland. In the middle of cyclone/monsoon season. Oh well. It will probably be the only warm weather I get this summer. I am looking forward to it. Meeting family again, and a few new people also. It will be nice. How about you? Any plans to head out over the holiday season? Tell me all about it....
