Craig and Jeane Depart for Australia and Bali

Jump to last reply

Yes, we leave tomorrow for Sydney for 4 action-packed days, moving on to Katoomba and the Blue Mountains for 2 nights before flying to Bali to spend time with our Japan travel friends Bob (rhkkmk), Karen (kmkrnn), Peter (hawaiiantraveler) and Linda for most of our 5 nights there. I imagine I'll post a short trip report on the Bali experience on this forum (this will be our second time in Bali) and a detailed one on Sydney/Katoomba on the Australia forum. Similar to the USA board, the locals "down under" provide more information than those who travel there, but I will take a shot at it from a foreigner's perspective, when we return.

For those interested in complex flying itineraries, we fly Hartford - Chicago - LA - Sydney. The last flight is 15 hours - plenty of time to catch up on sleep. We have 4-hour layovers before both the Chicago - LA and LA - Sydney legs, so I am hoping for no problems with missed connections or lost luggage. From Australia, we fly Sydney to Bali (6-1/2 hours). Returning home, it's Bali - Taipai - Seattle (sorry Kathie, no time to visit) - Charlotte - Hartford. All in Business Class by the way, except Hartford - Chicago, which uses a small aircraft and does not offer it. Probably too much time in the air but not really as bad as it sounds - it is a 15 day trip.
