Making plans

9 07 2013

In the past couple of weeks, I’ve been making travel plans, and paying for as much as I can while the Aussie dollar is still relatively high (I remember the dark days of 47 cents in the US dollar….).

Some of the plans I’ve made include:

  • Booked and paid for flights to/from Bali in September. Accommodation will be with my parents in their timeshare, so my biggest expense of the trip is the return airfare (just under $600).
  • Booked accommodation and restaurants in Albany and Esperance for a 4-day weekend in December to celebrate my birthday (yes, this is BEFORE the school holidays).
  • Booked and paid for flights to/from Los Angeles in February/March 2014.
  • Booked and paid for registration for a 6-day quilting workshop near Monterey, California in February 2014.
  • Booked and paid for car rental (and associated insurance) for the two weeks I’ll be in the US in February/March 2014.

The only things left to do — and they can be done some time in the future — are to book accommodation for my conference in Palm Springs, California in March 2014, and register for the conference (if I’m not speaking at it — I’ve submitted a proposal to speak, but won’t hear for a while yet if it’s been accepted). I’ve already contacted friends and family in California and have arranged to stay with them on my way to/from the quilting workshop and conference. And I’ve told my main client of the dates I’ll be away.

I *am* an organised little bunny 😉

Taking to the Open Road

Love the excitement of travel planning. I have no where near the number of plans you do – right now all I have is flights to Hanoi, Vietnam for the rest of the year, but I’m thinking maybe Jervis Bay for Christmas! Happy travels and even happier holiday planning!
