I just pulled the trigger on plane tickets. In October, I'm headed to Australia to (belatedly) celebrate my 50th trip around the Sun. The big bonus? My best friend (turned 50 the week after me) is coming along! There are a few must-see things: 1. Sydney 2. Uluru 3. Cairns/Great Barrier Reef I'm also toying with a visit to Melbourne and a drive along the Great Ocean Road. But nothing is set in stone just yet. I spent a couple of days in Sydney in 2008 and really enjoyed it. Like a smaller, cleaner San Francisco. Probably going to stay in the Rocks area again. Anybody got suggestions?
