WEATHER – Fine & Humid Well, after arriving at SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL in plenty of time, (7pm) we certainly weren’t going to miss our flight, departing at 10.20pm.

Our Summary of the Trip: Item 3

THE AIRLINES: Overall, the airlines were where we had the most problems. Because of the “so called”, discounted fares they are trying to squeeze what ever they can from pax’s where they can, eg: luggage, food & upgrading to a seat with more space for another $40.00 per pax. Generally, they all offered a can […]

THE WORKING COUNTRY COMPARRISONS: America and Canada are certainly interesting places in their own right. Tourism Australia states that both America and Canada (respectively) were chosen as the  second and third most popular choices for international destinations, for Aussies.
