A trip to New Zealand and Australia


Recommended Posts

In 9 days I depart for New Zealand and Australia. I’m going to meet Trevor Dickinson of A-EON (maker of the AmigaOne X1000) in Wellington, and after a few days there, I head for Sydney and look around (taking day tours from Viator.com) and meet any Commodore and Amiga users there. Then it’s off to Adelaide for the September 16 Adelaide Amiga and Retro-Computing Event. I fly down to Melbourne for the September 18 Australian Amiga User Group meeting. I return to Sydney on September 20. Then on September 22, I leave Australia on the return flight back to San Francisco.

Here is my itinerary –

September 1 – Leave San Francisco for Wellington, New Zealand.

September 3 – Arrive in Wellington, NZ. Accommodations provided by Trevor.

September 8 – Depart Wellington and arrive in Sydney. Accommodations at Hotel 59, 59 Bayswater Road, Rushcutters Bay, NSW

September 13 – Depart Sydney and arrive in Adelaide. Accommodations at Jasper Motor Inn, 17 Jasper Street, Hyde Park, SA

September 17 – Depart Adelaide and arrive in Melbourne. Accommodations at Monash Hotel, 2077 Dandenong Road, Clayton, VIC

September 20 – Depart Adelaide and arrive in Sydney. Accommodations at Hotel Ibis Budget St. Peters, 178 Princes Highway, St Peters NSW

I look forward to meeting all good Commodorians and Amigans in my journey. If you are in any of the areas to which I will be traveling, feel free to contact me at my hotels.

Two nights ago, after much effort (airport express bus to local train to local bus to walking with a big suitcase several streets in the dark while being led by Monash University computer science students Brendan and Alyssa), I finally made it to the Monash Hotel, room 13.

 

Whew,

Last night I arrived at my hotel. The weather is cool, overcast, and at times rainy. No touring today! ;)
Leaving for America tomorrow,
