May travel diary:: two weeks in Victoria & NSW Australia … and one day in Dubai en route home. My mini globe stayed in it’s travel case on the many (too many!) rainy and intensely windy days (like 70 kph winds!)
For travel i have traded the usual 5 pound Mini globe for a one-off extremely light-weight one.. meaning perching it on edges of buildings or the many beautiful look-outs and vista points i explored.. seemed like a bad idea!
Travel Tip :: If you are going to visit Australia in Fall… bring layers out with you. Each day across the handful of cities i visited would go from torrential rain to clear blue skies and warm sun within hours…. and then back again.
Essential packing :: Jeans, tights, multiple sweaters, warm pyjamas (for hotels with air con and no heat), lightweight coat, and shoes you can walk miles in… you’ll want to.
Things i packed & didn’t wear :: Bathing suit, sandals, summer dresses…
