The Three Sisters are still in Katoomba.
 Ocker Australians in the era of the sort of obligatory trip to London sixty years ago travelled by sea.  How would long distant sea routes be as an alternative to flights and carbon emissions?
 The ethics of air travel has had me thinking for some time.  To plant a few trees as offset is a gesture of sorts.
 Elizbeth Farrelly who writes very interestingly about the built environment, wrote in the Herald recently about ...the preposterous lie that endless travel is a basic right...and questions our addiction to travel and the consequences.
 How can one possibly steal a last overseas journey in this climate? Not to swell the hordes at the tried and true top ten destinations but more of the lived experience and to gallivant in a specific 'corner' of some culture and history would not fail to please.
