The day has passed quickly. Our foreign currency is now acquired, everyone in the bank wishing me a great time. We printed off Australian entry visas. American entry permission stuff (a technical word you may see quite often!) and Alcatraz e-tickets, we collect the genuine tickets at pier 33 on Tuesday 3rd of February. We had to enter the date we were going on the trip on a form on the computer and I put 03/02/2015 and it was immediately rejected. So I entered 02/03/2015 and of course being an American website it was then quite happy with the date. So bless it has started to be a struggle already. I guess we will get used to the American way……….eventually.
Will this all fit in two suitcases? Of course it will.
We will let you know how the preparation things are progressing later next week. But poor Dillon (our 15-year-old cat) has yet to realise he is off to the cattery a week on Saturday for a rather extended stay.
