Do keep us informed Robert. Would be great to catch up.

I'm going to Melbourne for just about pocket change next week. (only a rushed couple of days unfortunately).
I'm keeping an eye, airfares from LA are pretty good, $700 US, but LA is too far out of the way for me; it would mean flying 20 hours versus 10 from here. Air New Zealand flies from Honolulu, but I haven't been able to find out on what days. I sent them an email about it, hopefully they will respond.

Keeping my fingers crossed
