SXSW 2007

This is my travel blog. It started as a way for people to keep up with my trip to Australia to watch the 2006/7 Ashes series, and continued with my trip to SXSW 2007 in Austin, Texas, and Las Vegas in March '07.

Dude, what happened to Tuesday?

As I type this I'm trying very hard to stay awake as it's about 4:30pm on Wednesday 22nd - we left Heathrow at 8pm on Monday and arrived in Brisbane at 7AM this morning and if we are to stand any chance of surviving the whole day tomorrow at the Gabba we MUST stay awake 'til 10pm tonight. It's not easy tho' when your entire body is saying "Go on! You know you want to close your eyes! Just for 2 minutes. Really. Just 2 minutes.................."
We are off to meet Moz's friend Russell in a bit - he's the one who has acquired the Ashes tickets for us here in Brisbane so it's quite important that we meet up!
The flight was reasonable - we stopped in Dubai and Singapore which meant each leg was about 6-7 hours long with a break to stretch our legs in between. Very civilised. Especially when you can use the Executive lounges and get free food and drink! It was also rather impressive to be met by a chauffeur dressed in a suit and peaked cap............. Pictures of this to follow.
