Subject: How about winter vacations?
Hello Ziners,

I'm so jealous. All of the wonderful trips planned for the northern summer, with us heading into cold, cold winter. I feel compelled though to fly the flag for the southern hemisphere, since everyone else is pretty quiet. I'm heading north to Port Douglas, north of Cairns, for 2 weeks or so in August, to join my husband who is housesitting for 4 weeks. The thought of the 30 degree heat, when Sydney will be freezing and very windy in August is most appealing, I can tell you. Is anybody else going away this winter?

Cheers to all, Sally, from desperately dry Sydney.
