Next Two Weeks

The kids are off school for two weeks, and we've set our travel schedule. I go to Adelaide and Perth next week, and return to Canberra on Saturday. On Sunday (the 8th) we fly to Brisbane, where we'll take in the Australia Zoo (Steve Irwin's place) and the various attractions of the Coast. From there, we fly to Cairns, where we'll spend one day on the reef (via a tour company called Quicksilver) and another walkng through the rain forest. I'll fulfill my dream to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef, and they have submarines, glass-bottom boats, underwater observation tanks, and other non-swimming things. We'll also see the rainforest: it's quite tropical in the North. We return to Canberra on the 15th, and the kids are back in school on the 16th. Then I'm off to Melbourne again on the 18th and 19th, and then Sydney on the 25th and 26th.

Of course, as a result of the trip to Cairns the children will have to work their own way through college. But just think of the value of the experience!
