Like all others in a regular weekday 9-6 job, I’m having the TGIF mood. What makes it even better is that it’s 2 weeks to go before I hop on the plane for Sydney! Finally am gonna be having that vacation I’ve been planning for ages ~ w00t!
Mhmm… I should most likely be finalizing the itinerary (which is of cos not set in stone) by end nxt week. Think I should be pre-packing my luggage as well to ensure that I’ll have time to purchase check-in should I require it. A 7kg carry on allowance is a tad stingy. Considering that I’ll have to bring my own bath towel, and probably extra clothing to stay fresh as we gonna be walking quite a bit… I think I’ll have problems staying within the limit. It’s a 10 day trip after all. Bleh, would hate it if I end up only like 2-3kg over, gonna be a waste of check-in purchase. This is one disadvantage of flying solo. If I’ve got another 1-2 friends, I won’t hesitate getting check-in to share.
Heh am certainly gotta take tons of photographs this trip. The Blue Mountains are so beautiful! I just wish I had more time to explore. It’ll be 5 days Sydney (inc arrival & departure days… which is effectively like ½ day each), 5 days Blue Mountains. Quite the challenge to fit everything into the itinerary. Have done the best I could but am pretty sure we won’t be doing everything listed each day due to delay, side-tracking and what nots – will probably have like 75% completion lol.
I wonder how my ex-guildmates are gonna be like irl. Have known the Sydney pair since forever… haha, I still remember it was back in TBC while on my rogue. I can’t remember which was the exact instance we met – either Zul’Farrak or Sunken Temple, but we had our 1st ever raid together. Karazhan. Both were healers in Triple Moons. The other 2 (one flying down from Adelaide, another from Malaysia), I met later, when we had a combined guild raid for 25-man content. Triple Moons split up during WoTLK into PBJ & Defiance, but we still did achievement raids together for titles & drakes. Much fun. I hope it wouldn’t end up totally awkward in person! And yep, aside from those whom I’ll be traveling with, am looking to meet up with another 3-4 Sydney based WoW players that I know too… for dinner/lunch or whatever. Srsly, before planning this trip, I didn’t even know so many of the peeps I know online are frm Sydney. I only knew them as being Australian 😛
Eh come to think of it, how should I be addressing them? ign or real name?
