Unbelievably, it’s suddenly the first of April, and the day I go to America. In just a few hours I’ll go to the airport to fly to Auckland, where I’ve got a couple of hours’ wait before I fly for another 12 hours to San Francisco, and then it’ll *still* be the morning of the first of April! (I love time travel ;-))
Totally packed (and managed to squeeze in a couple (ok, six) of extra books this morning – I can still lift my suitcase so I reckon it’s still safely under 20kg), bag is sitting by the door ready to go.
(Just got a message from Skyring – they’re at Canberra airport!)
I probably won’t have time to post much along the way, but I’ll be keeping a handwritten journal which I’ll type up when I get home.
