Have decided I'm taking a week off work and turning the weekend into a 6 day trip to the east coast. Have been at the servo for almost 3 years and this is the first decent holdiay I've taken. Being casual I don't get paid holidays, so usally don't take off more than a day or two. But I really need a break and the east coast is about as far as I can afford to go. Have been invited to a wedding in the US in June, but there's no way I can afford to go that far or take enough time off work (ie at least 2 or 3 weeks to make it worthwile) so it's the 2 day/2 city con instead.
Thurs 24th May, Friday , Saturday in Sydney fly down to Melbourne Sat night, then spend Sunday, Monday & Tuesday there before flying home either Tues night or Wednesday morning. It's gonna be full-on but I desperately need a break from work.
Have a couple of touristy things to do-- Harbour Bridge climb in Sydney (Have been to Sydney heaps in last 10 years but have never been able to fit in a bridge climb) and The MCG tour in Melbourne. Have been a big AFL footy and cricket fan since I was little so am looking forward to this tour. Apart from that I'll probably just see what's on offer when I get to both cities. Was hoping to catch a game of footy while in Melbourne but they conflict with the con, so maybe next time.
