Posted:Ok, so I've been staring at a calender, trying to work out what on Earth I'm doing for my trip down under.



My plans so far:



I arrive in Melbourne on the 30th of May (at some stupid time in the morning, but it'll feel like its still yesterday, or something).



I plan to stay in and around Melbourne til the 5th/6th of June, when I plan (nothing concrete yet) to fly to Sydney, where I'm going to stay for a couple of days before flying (this is getting expensive) to Brizzie around the 8th/9th June for a few days before flying back to Melbourne to catch a flight to Christchurch on the 15th. I have literally no idea what I'm going to do in New Zealand (Steph - any ideas?).



Other than spending most of my holiday in flight, I'd like to meet as many people as I can, so, my questions are:



Anyone in any of these places got any suggestions for meets (yes, I know its winter tongue )?



Can anyone spare floor space to save a poor HoPper from the nightmares that are hotel rooms?



peace



Time to get excited now (and for the next several weeks)! bounce

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

I think Perth and Adelaide (and a moonfest) are going to have to wait til next year.

Domestic flights are super easy to change! You have to make it to a Moonfest! On my behalf too!

Posted:HoP calendar? *goes off to have a look*



aaaah I see... it does say 20th indeed...



And if you click on the link in the calendar. it goes on to say *20th August 2005... monthly...*

Hence confusion...



But Moonfest is LUNAR monthly... it happens on the full moon, whatever day/date that is. Hence MoonubblovePixie posts a thread a few times a year with the dates....
