Off to Melbourne this weekend, for the Australian Open. Jeff booked the trip before we even arrived in Australia, so we hadn’t even realized that Monday was Australia Day and hence a public holiday. So it’s just a quick short weekend trip this time. At the last minute, TPR decided to join in for the ride as well.
Having tolerated the militant affair that is flying domestic in the US, it was so refreshing going through airport security in Australia. No unpacking our bags to show whatever tiny bottles of toiletries we could stuff into ugly zip lock bags, no removal of lap tops and shoes, no turning out of pockets. We didn’t even have to show any identity cards!
It was later that it dawned on me further that oh my god – we can buy as much wine as we can hand carry on board!!!
I love Australia already. 🙂
