I've come up from academia to browse a bit on the forums! Well, yesterday (after my nightmare Cape Argus cycle tour) I took off and went to the dr... thought I DON'T want the remains of any bug in my system, so I got some antibiotics to nuke 'em. By Sunday I don't want to have a bug on top of jetlag.
Thanks for the kind offers of Aussie hospitality
... I do have a sleepeasy tent with two mattresses...
Fortunately I generally sleep well on planes, so I hope I'll be able to do it this time and start the ride reasonably well rested. There are simply to many things to see and do (esp for a first time visitor to Australia) to sleep the tour away.
Thanks for the birthday wishes... I think I will delay celebrations until I arrive in Aus and can relax and do it well! (Not even allowed a sip of alcohol with the antibiotics!, and then with tests and study etc there are other things to do).
See you all very soon
