The quest begins

View Backpacking 2006 on jefranklin's travel map.

After a long wait, the day has arrived - we are about to start our 6 months of travels.

After bumming around Mike & Hazel's place for the morning, Heather's dad gave us a lift to Sydney airport at 1pm for our 2:30 flight.
The flight itself was uneventful, flown with the world's worst airline. However, untypically the flight & the cabin staff were pretty good; maybe it's just long haul where they need to improve.
We landed at Hobart at around 4:30 and picked up our rental car, which was a comfy little Kia Rio. Ten minutes later and we were in the centre of Hobart trying to find somewhere to park.
We checked into the Argyle Guest House, had a shower and finished the evening at an Italian restaurant. We went way over budget, but what the hell, we're at the start of the expedition and we needed to celebrate!
