The main change from the itinerary I’d worked out is that we don’t need to spend a night in Sydney on the way to Perth (though I do get a night there on the way home – hopefully enough time for a meetup to catch up with a few friends), so we get two nights in Perth now. Which means the only place I won’t get to stay two nights is Dallas/Fort Worth, but I’m arriving there early enough and leaving late enough the next day that I’ll get the best part of two days to look around.

Now I’ve got to start seriously sorting out accommodation: confirming the offers I do have, and writing some more begging PMs to people in the places where I haven’t got anything.

Hope my boss doesn’t expect me to actually do any work today! 😉
