I'm leaving on a jet plane…

1 December, 2001

..today at 11:35am on Ansett Mark II, flight AN342, to Adelaide. It’s amazing to think I can travel that far in just 3 hours – the wonders of modern flight.

For those who wish to know, the distance between Perth and Adelaide is not dissimilar to that between Belfast, N.Ireland, and Istanbul, Turkey, or between Los Angeles CA and Birmingham AL – it’s about 2,600 km.

My itinerary is as follows:
1 Jan – 5 Jan Adelaide (staying in Adelaide Int’l Motel, Glenelg)
5 Jan – 10 Jan Melbourne (staying at Hotel Claremont, South Yarra The Miami, West Melbourne)
10 Jan – 16 Jan Canberra

My road blog will be updated as I travel.
