... that is that phenomenal!! But basically that's like deciding to fly from Atlanta to Houston...by way of a 3 day stop over in Portland, Maine. Definitely not the most direct route, but we are betting that it will be well worth it :)

But when you throw New Year's Eve on top of it, we're talking "sell a kidney" type prices here. Alright, let's try a new plan and back it up to Australia Day - January 26. We'd still get some fireworks, it's still summer, it's close to my birthday, perfect! And well, it's still ...
