I was doing a quick read of my messages from the Travelzine and read the e-mail from M.E. Meyer of Califonia. It sounds like a very ambitious trip in just three weeks, more or less. I suggest that she read In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson before she takes off. I spent two weeks in Australia in 1994. We flew everywhere and just hit the high spots on the eastern side of Australia. But it is a great place to visit.
