Off to Kangaroo Island

We've made it to Adelaide, which is down south. Much nicer weather, not as humid or hot. We had an interesting time flying from Cairns. We were way over the luggage allowance, and apparently the printout I had from JetStars web site wasn't clear about a different allowance for Qantas international customers. Very fortunately the agent after much discussion did not charge us the $500 they wanted to. The flight for both of us was only $370, so we are glad they did not charge us! Ironically, if Qantas had not delayed our luggage we would have had the same problem on the first flight to Cairns, and would have missed that flight, hauling the luggage around, so it worked out well. (Plus Qantas gave us $200 for emergency clothes, so we actually made money!!)

We are picking up our Wicked Camper van in a hour. They are all painted psychedelic, it reminds John of the 60's. We are taking the ferry to Kangaroo island for a few days, and then will drive the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne. Kangaroo island is beautiful, and has a ton of wildlife we are looking forward to seeing.

We don't know when we will get Internet access next, since we will be at campsites for a while. It is a good thing we will be at campsites, because we need to get back on budget, and stop eating so much!
