If you have signed up for the FREE Get Up & Go e-newsletter (www.getupandgo.com.au), you will have seen the great bargains on offer now - free flights (just pay taxes) on some packages; discounts for earlybird bookings; free things to do in London – yep, for free! River cruises are hot to trot at the moment, so check out savings by booking early. There's a special two day accommodation package and amazing day tour to be had in Cairns and information on a themed tour (Christmas markets) in Europe. Aah, life in the travelling lane!
I'm off to Victoria's High Country on Sunday for an adventure packed three days - and I am so not an adventure woman. Will be reporting next week on adventures or perhaps accidents. It's good to have an open mind!
Note for the week: more cruise ships than ever before are visiting Australian waters, so get in early and book your dream cruise. Remember when you had to fly half way - or sometimes further around the world to pick up a ship? Ask your travel agent for suggestions.
Travel guide book of the week: Frommer's Singapore day by day - 20 smart ways to see the city. On sale now for $19.95
Travel companion book of the week: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larrson, the first of The Millennium trio. Fabulous book (my opinion only).
