When I was recently made redundant I said
to myself that I was going to take a little time to myself and go on a
nice holiday before looking for work again. Today I booked that holiday
and it should be a great trip.
Starting from Dublin I’m off to Austrailia visiting Perth, Canberra and
Sydney. Then it’s on to Hawaii for a few days before hitting the
US mainland where I’m going to Las Vegas for a few more days and then onto
Orlando for Lotusphere. I’ll be getting into Orlando a few days early
so I can hit the theme parks, enjoy Lotusphere and then it’s off back to
the real world and job searching.
Should be an great trip and I’ll probably be doing a hell of a lot of air
miles. Christmas day on a beach in Sydney should be an interesting experience.
Oh, and I’m over in Pittsburgh for Thanksgiving again this year.
Have a good trip! Look me up when you get to Vegas!BTW, U2 in Vegas was great…..I plan to belatedly blog about it soon, complete with grainy phonecam pics….
Ah-hem. You’ve got to get a picture of yourself walking along a very very long road with a lotusphere bag on your back….http://www.longwayround.com/intro.htmLike the new blog look BTW…—* Bill
UK -> Australia sounds like a Singapore stoppover. Plan in a day and I’ll show you around. stw
It is indeed a Singapore stopover but only for 1 hour so I don’t think I’ll be able to even get off the airplane let alone out of the airport.
Christmas Day on a beach in New Zealand! We will be thinking of you and opening another tinnie!
Sounds a grand trip, think we will have to compare ‘The long way round’ stories when we get to LS – we arrive on the Friday from San Francisco (…from New Zealand, from Hong Kong)
I will be in Vegas the week before Lotusphere too.
a LOT of us will be in Vegas the week before Lotusphere. I know there are nine fine Irishmen there…
We’ll have to try organise a few pints of Guinness while we’re all there. I’m there from the 15th till the 19th Jan.I better book my hotel before everything is gone.
