mopsus mormon, green jumping spider for the past three months, i've been super diligent in making up an itinerary and following it. today, i screwed up. for some-reason, i didn't look at my flight details until it was too late. stuck in darwin two more days than i really want, i have many thoughts mulling an escape. conversely, i'm given much needed time to reflect. with my back up against the ocean, i have laid out a tight time table for my journey to adelaide, melbourne and sydney.

adelaide

friday morning at 3 am i depart darwin; i arrive in adelaide at 6.30 am. upon touchdown, i am to trek to the central market, meet my friend jo, make fun of her, wish her a happy birthday and then get further instructions.

jo is also the second person who's meeting will span two continents (matan you were my first). jo and i first met in prague while she participated in TOL's New Media course. with the utmost joy, i get to spend the weekend celebrating her birthday and picking up where we left off... starring into the bottom of a glass.

melbourne
with much sadness i am having to cancel my dinner plans with benbalbo.com and his coworkers. on monday, 15 October at 6.40 pm, i will arrive in melbourne via the Indian Pacific train. my hopes are to spend two nights catching face time with drupal enthusiasts, reconnecting with ben balbo and his peeps, ride trams snapping pictures of the notable street art and attempting to get a bite on the colonial tramcar restaurant.

on wednesday night (17 oct) at 20h i will depart via bus and spend the night driving to sydney.

sydney
with aspirations of a glorious sunset on camera, i will arrive at 8.30 in the morning. with 36 hours to gallivant through the sights, i am looking forward to getting the inescapable photo of the opera house. before i depart on the 20th, i am hoping to meet as many geeks as possible, have dinner with a bunch of bloggers, play a little AD/CD kerroke and visit the national maritime museum or the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

now i'm off to find a room and grab a bite to eat. hopefully, i won't encounter any of the spiders emblatame has documented...

hey,

wish I was there, they have the same funky spiders as in Africa :-P
Are you going to New Zealand at all? Maybe you wanna check out the rainbow valley farm and some perma-culture gardening - I can't really say it relates to your topics, but maybe it does? I don't know, find out.
Have fun! Gimme a smile in one of the next pictures :-)

You are not visiting Brisbane? Why even come to Australia, and not come to Brisbane?
What do the other capitols have that we do not, we are the fastest growing and most popular, hee hee.
If you're in Brisbane, be sure to let me know. I have only recently discovered this site, but i am fascinated.
