Packing and Packages

28 Mar

I picked up  packages from the Post Office this morning. It was like Christmas. One from my dad with the laptop charger I had ordered that the company stupidly sent to my US address, a CD and some $. The other package was from Michelle with peeps, some other Easter candies, fake nails, pictures of Heidi and some other assorted goodies. Thank you!


We are all packed and ready to head out to the airport in a few minutes. I discovered that if we fly on a domestic flight in Australia that there are no liquid restrictions. I don’t have anything too huge, but it’s nice not to worry about it.

And this is all Rob's stuff!
Just kidding, he's of course bringing hardly anything and I have my tiny carry on.

I’m excited about Tasmania. We’re flying into Hobart, at the south end of the island. We’re spending a few days there, then renting a car (watch out!) and driving up the east coast to The Bay of Fires and staying in St. Helens. Then we’re off to Cradle Mountain and spending the night in Launceston. The last night is in Devonport and on Monday we take the Spirit of Tasmania home. We’re only bringing the ipad so I will blog if we have wifi, which so far hasn’t been available much in Melbourne*.

*except for someone in our building who doesn’t have a password. Thanks momo! He’s hardly ever online, but we “borrow” wifi when we can.

    Ya! Only took 9 days to get there, not bad.

    You are quite welcome. I might make it a regular occasion.
    Have fun in Tazmania, and if Rob drives, sit in the back seat and offer helpful hints, like “LOOK OUT!” and, “NO THE OTHER SIDE!”.
    What’s the Australian equivalent of the finger?
