We went for the routine WorldMark "Member's Update" this morning and got 'incentivised' into upgrading our membership. Booked some accommodation for Erin in Austin TX, where she and Peter are going to the South by SouthWest Interactive festival next weekend.
Following Baddie's suggestion, we then bought two Opal transport cards and caught the bus to Bondi Beach. On the slow bus trip we had a good chat with some holidaying US servicemen from Montgomery, Alabama. After checking out the Bondi Icebergs Club we took the coastal walk to Coogee Beach. A pretty walk, maybe 8km long.
Enjoyed lunch and the terrific free wi-fi at the Coogee Pavilion (50Mb/sec up and down!) then caught a Uber ride home.
We leave tomorrow for Brisbane after a very enjoyable visit and seeing valued friends.
NB. A taxi from home to the airport typically costs $60. Uber (not yet approved in Brisbane) from the airport to home cost $37! Say no more...
