We leave the UK on 9th January and our first stopover will be Kuala Lumpur - it's only a couple of hours, just enough time to stretch our legs & maybe freshen up. We decided to stay in Sydney for a couple of days before heading to Melbourne to stay with Lou & Andy.
Andy's very excited about the whole thing and has started making plans - there is talk of a road trip to Adelaide to take in a couple of stages of the Tour Down Under and also take part in the BUPA Challenge, even if it's only the short one!
Now we start on all the planning - where to go, what to see. We might even try and fit in a couple of days on Tasmania. So many things to think off - and all very exciting. To be honest I don't think it's actually sunk in yet, we've only paid a £50 deposit each plus the Sydney hotel - maybe it will be more real the closer we get.
