    Agree with the Coco, Byron is an epic place for a night out, and the beaches is beautiful etc etc....mind the straight edge kids though, but perhaps they could have grown out of it by now though since they can enter the pubs legally.

    I'm there for 11 days, so I figure 4-5 days around Sydney, 4-5 around Bristane and travelling between them for the rest.

    How long do you think it takes to travel from Sydney to Brisbane by car at a reasonable pace?
    I'd give it at least one night if you are going to go out there, because basically you are looking at driving 3 hours from sydney, doing a couple of laps of Mt pano, having a feed in a cafe/maccas then returning to sydney

    SoC that place looks amazing! I'm sure I've mentioned it already, but Croatia is the one country in Europe that I regret not going to.

    DoG - (I only like writing to people with middles of 'of' apparently) I wouldn't spend too long in Brisbane really. It's a great place to live but I don't think there is THAT much to see from a tourist point of view unless there is an event that you want to see.

    It's not a bad spot though, Byron's just more exciting in my opinion.
    I found Byron to be fairly expensive and had to wait forever just to get a sandwhich made. Mind you the people there didn't seem to be that interested in working that hard.

    I saw 47 people wearing crocs during my 7-day stay in Hawaii.

    I am disillusioned.

    And now I'll leave before I see any posts about the Ashes. Time to spend the next several hours in front of the TV. MySky is a life saver.

    We'll have to stop ending every sentence with 'at some point' at some point.

    I am going to the Kumbh Mela 11th-13th around! It is the largest gathering of people any where in the world. It is a hindu pilgrim thing which entails taking a dip/bathing in the river. It occurs once every 12 years.

    Just by coincidence my friend mentioned it and then I talked to an aunt who said another aunt was intersted in going there. I talked with her and they are going and I am joining them in Delhi from Mirzapur from where we will proceed to Haridwar.

    I don't like crowds and so wasn't really interested in going when my friend mentioned it but it will be a mighty good experience I am sure. Most of all I am looking at taking nude pics of sadhus who don't wear clothes as a rule as pictured here.

    You've just quoted and agreed with yourself. That's the most bizarre thing I've seen in the last twenty minutes.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
