Mucky made it home

Hi everyone !!!
Just a quick jetlagged few lines to tell you we made it home here to cardiff.
Got throught the door about 4 hours ago and trying desperately to keep awake until night fall.
NYE was great and the Waldorf....mmmm wait and see !!!
I will keep you guessing for a little while

I will be posting my report on our wonderful trip where I had the very great pleasure of meeting Marg in Melbourne, Alan in Sydney, Patw in sydney and spoke to margo oz by telephone.
So a kind of fodors meeting just at different times.
This is becoming incoherant now as my single brain cell is struggling to come to terms with a really less than average british airways flight from Singapore after a fabulous Qantas flight from Syney to singapore.But from the news I am hearing about BA flights we should be grateful to have taken off at all.
Will post soon

Good to hear that you all returned home safely -- a lot of the "regulars" (like myself) will be waiting anxiously for your report -- all ready to sue the minute we read something defamatory about ourselves!

I feel so left out! This is just the time that I am sorry to live in Queensland but I think I am going to be meeting up with some interesting Fodors in the next couple of months too.
Hopefully will get to meet Alan myself ( gosh its like a b.... fan club) in February if I can get to Sydney then. I am going to be in Melbourne between January 20th - Feb 4th so will check on past suggestions for Melb.

A less than average flight on BA, eh? Maybe they didn't want you back!

But notice how pleasant the Qantas team were - they knew you were leaving!

See you next trip!

and Mucky, I can't believe you flew out at the start of the most fascinating and spectacular cricket test for years!

This one had it all - Sydney Cricket Ground, green and lush (and that's not only the patrons!), brilliant, hot weather, an Indian team right on form, great batsmen, (7/705 - sheeesh!), high drama, perseverance, high emotion, last test match for Australian captain Steve Waugh, an exciting run chase.

Wonderful to be part of it - even for one day!

The test was really worth seeing and I missed it !!!
You are so lucky.
Never mind I will have to pop down to sophia gardens in about April, when the season starts.
I can't believe that my planning was really so bad.
Really pleased you got there Margo.

I have just found out that my assignment for Uni due in on 20th is actually due in on Friday 9th !
Oh my god, unfortunately the trip report is temporarily suspended pending completion of Uni work.
I'm sure you will understand.

Just tell us the topic and all your Fodor's friends will contribute a paragraph each. There's twenty thousand words just needing to be collated!
