Leaving on a Jet Plane
27 Jan 2002 - Portland A couple of months into my year long sabbatical from work, and the day has finally come for us to take leave of...
Bloody hell! Not another Australian indulgence by the whinging pommie! Yes – four years after our original sojourn to the land down under, Lynn and I have decided to do it all again. This trip will be a little more expeditious than the last, but no less fun for that.
So, how do we get to this point again? Lynn is a freelance writer (and therefore a free agent) with an extreme aversion to any climate even remotely approaching inclemency. Nick, for reasons way too complicated to relate here, has determined that a year away from the rat race (a.k.a. work) is the only possibility way of holding on to his health and sanity. Therefore, we both find ourselves with time on our hands and located in a state with a predilection for rain at this time of year (and copious amounts of it).
Time for a vacation somewhere warmer! Read on….
