LCA Squeeeeeeeee

Registrations opened for 2011 a couple of days ago, not wanting to miss out, I’ve quickly gone and registered for the conference, accommodation (well, I’ve sent the PDF form and am awaiting a response, blergh) as well as both international and domestic flights.

I’ve decided to use the opportunity of the trip as a chance to make some deters to see friends and have a bit of a relax in the Gold Coast, Tasmania and Melbourne before/after the conference.

I’ve booked all the flights now, my schedule is as follows:

20 JAN        Wellington -> Brisbane -> Gold Coast
FLIGHT       (AirNZ NZ0826 – 16:35 arrival at Brisbane)
21 JAN        Gold Coast
22 JAN        Gold Coast
23 JAN        Gold Coast -> Brisbane
TRAIN?      (aim to be in Brisbane early afternoon – train?)
24 JAN for entire week in Brisbane CBD
30 JAN -> Melbourne (1hr stop) -> Hobart
FLIGHT      (Virgin DJ334/DJ1332 – 15:00 departure)
31 JAN        Hobart
01 FEB        Hobart->Launceston
02 FEB        Launceston->Hobart -> Melbourne
FLIGHT       (Virgin DJ1325 – 13:45 departure)
03 FEB        Melbourne
04 FEB        Melbourne -> Wellington
FLIGHT      (AirNZ NZ0850 – 18:40 departure)
05 FEB        Sleep & Geekery

There’s still some stuff to work out, such as accommodation, travel in Hobart (might rent a car, I should have my full NZ license by then….) but the key bit – getting there – is all sorted now. :-)

The only other issue left is my credit card bill…. ;-)

If you’re in any of the locations above and I haven’t already mentioned meeting up with you, please drop me a line – I’m sure I have or twitter friends in some of these cities who I don’t realise actually live there. ;-)

    Train between Brisbane and Gold Coast is pretty good, only takes an hour. That’s how I travel if I’m going to Brisbane for the day (because the parking is abysmal), and usually how I get to the airport as well. I can probably score you free theme park tickets, and at the very least get them super cheap, so don’t book anything like that (if that’s your kind of thing).

      Awesome, thanks! TBH, my plans for the gold coast are probably going to be eat, drink, laze about on beach/sun after a pretty busy work year, but I’m still deciding what to actually do whilst there. ;-)

      (Unless there is a cougar adventure theme park?? ;-)

      Will be good to meet you and the other twitter ladies for a night out when I’m there. :-D
