All my transport for Linux.conf.au 2007 is booked, and there’s quite a comfortable holiday surrounding it all. I have yet to pay for the conference itself, but that’s because they’re having technical problems it seems. (Update: turns out the payment went through fine)
My itinerary is:
- 11/01: Christchurch -> Melbourne
- 14/01: Melbourne -> Sydney, Conference checkin
- 20/01: Conference checkout
- 24/01: Sydney -> Canberra
- 27/01: Canberra -> Brisbane
- 31/01: Brisbane -> Christchurch
Involved in this, are four plane flights with three different airlines, and a train ride from Sydney to Canberra. It should be fun.
There is a lot going on at the conference. I haven’t yet gone through that properly to see what I want to go to. If I’m lucky, I’ll manage to get a laptop for the duration, which will mean I can go to the tutorials (this one on GTK could be interesting, an alternative to using SWT in Java).
Aside from that, there’s a fair number of family and friends to visit in all the places. It seems that half the people I know have ended up in Sydney, and a sizable chunk of the rest scattered around a bit further away.
My credit card is just about smoking from all the money passing through it though…
