I just paused to see what Elijah was ripping out of a notebook, and discovered it was our 2009 Australia and New Zealand itinerary. I decided I would duplicate it somewhere a little less destructible. I have gazillions of photos of the trip in my Picasaweb album, so maybe I’ll toss a few of those in. Brian’s former company awarded him with two first-class tickets to anywhere in the world, and they were about to expire. Additionally, we were four months away from the birth of our third son and decided that “now was the time!” We flew into Sydney and explored a bit before continuing to Tasmania and renting a car for a whirlwind tour. After that, we did another quick zip through parts of the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Obviously, we did nothing too adventurous, but it was a trip, in true Brian and Amy style, that we’ll never forget.
