Finally, after what feels like basically my adult life time of checking Skyscanner, Google Flights and every other flight booking website out there, I’ve booked my flight to Australia! I don’t know about anyone else but trying to find a decent price on flights makes me crazy. I end up looking at them everyday and the prices change each time you look, so frustrating!!
I’ve read lots of ‘travel hacking’ sort of tips but I think in Canada it’s hard to find really cheap deals. I did get a Capital One Aspire credit card about 2 months ago that I’ve been using, it’s points can be redeemed towards travel purchases. I will probably do a separate post on that at some point once I’ve used it a little bit more.
Now that the flight is booked it’s becoming a bit more real that I’m going Australia…and in just 3 weeks! I don’t have a ton of stuff to get organized before I leave, mostly just trying to figure out what to pack. I think I’ll need a fairly decent variety of clothing since the weather seems to differ a lot between Melbourne, where I’ll be starting my trip, and Cairns, where I’ll be meeting up with a friend to travel down the coast.
Time to work on a packing list…
