Almost Time to Leave
Australia – Here I Come!
Well, time to leave is getting near. Tuesday is the big day! I have a 12 hour flight from Vancouver to Shanghai, wait about 6 hours, then a 11 hour flight to Melbourne, Australia (arriving Thursday, Jan 8).
Melbourne is 17 hours ahead of Vancouver time. You easterners can subtract 3 hours from that. There is an extreme heat, fire danger warning there right now. The weather predictions say thunderstorms on Thursday and up to about 31 degrees. Friday it will rain and up to only 22 degrees. I might have to bring out my Vancouver brolly and wait a few more days to finally see the sun. I hope the rain won’t put a damper on my Greyhound/Great Ocean Road/Adelaide trip (starting Friday morning).
