good to hear from you. My travleing plans so far:
I will arrive in Melbourne on 30. November and stay at Tim's.
I will continue to Perth on 5. December, fly to Darwin on 8. December and probably travel by bus to Alice Springs, trying to see some importante sights in between. I'm still not sure if is too risky to try to catch the plave back to Melbourne on 12. Deccember at 11:40 when the bus is scheduled to arrive in Alice Springs at 9:15.
Then I will be at Melbourne again till 18. December. I think there will be an opportuinity to meet.
