Well, here we are again at Sydney Airport, off on another adventure. Some things change (at last, KSF has a departure area that doesn’t look like a slum), some don’t, but the most interesting thing for me about this trip is taking Dom overseas for the first time!

Perhaps that is an exaggeration, but the boys certainly have loomed in the travel plans. I would be quite happy with a bit of culture, lots of scenic walking and photography. Somehow, neither Paula nor I think that will be enough.

Jetstar here we come. Will they make us pay for the toilets as well as the food? At least, given the gouging on the inflight entertainment, I’ll get to read the remainder of The Whisperers, which is proving to be the best social history I’ve read in years. Prepare for a book review.
