Hey Laurienne,
Yeah, i cant wait now to be honest, starting to get really excited and nervous

My best mate lives down in NZ so i thought i had better call in on him for a bit and my brother lives in Taiwan and i havent seen him over two years so im really looking forward to seeing him

Ive got another couple of distant friends dotted around Oz to so im hoping they will be able to help me out with jobs and stuff and a place to lay my for a nite or two if needed

hey Gary,
i know the feeling its weird to be excitied and scared at the same time!
that sounds really good, taiwan sounds like a brilliant place to see. i think im just going to be boring and stay in oz. ive got friends all over the place so im hoping they wont mind a wee visit from me, fingers crossed.

what stop overs do u have, coz ive got 2 1 in dubai and one in kuala lumpa. im getting really worried about the flight, im not scarred of flying but its the amount of time thats getting me.

Dont worry about the time, just watch 2/3 movies and its fine.

They stagger it so you can eat, drink, watch a film and have a wee kip b4 landing.

me and my mate are gonna be in KL as well. But were flying to Bangkok for 3 nights, then heading to Hua Hin for 7 days on the beach. Then train down to KL (2 day journey ). 2 nights in KL, and then bus and 1 night in Singapore b4 landing in Melbourne on the 11th Sept.

Hey Laurienne, dont worrie about the time on the plane, it will fly

As Milby said if you watch a few movies, have some food, a few beers, a wee chat to your neighbour and read of your lonely planet guide you will be grand ;)

I flew to Taiwan and back on me own two summers ago the flight passed quick enough to be honest.

Unfortuantely my flight is pretty much direct, have a stop over in Singapore but only for 2hr while the plane re-fuels so that should be fun for me

Have any of ye any sightseeing plans yet for Melbourne or ye just gona see what happens when ye get there?
