With less than 7 weeks until we leave we have everything pretty well organised.
However, one thing that was not booked was our carparking at the airport in Brisbane. We live 80km (50 miles) from Brisbane and have limited options of people who could take us to and from the airport. It is just easier to drive ourselves and park the car securely. Whilst this comes at a cost we factor it into our holiday expenses. There are several options either at the airport or off-site and serviced by a shuttle-bus. Thanks to a ‘hot deal’ (their words) and a discount code we managed to get undercover valet parking located 3 minutes walk from the international terminal for less than outdoor parking at an off-site facility with shuttle-bus transfers.
The other bookings are a bit more exciting.
We had already booked tickets to the ‘Classical Spectacular’ at Royal Albert Hall which I have written about previously. You can read the post here. As a result of snippets of information gleaned from various sources I found and booked 2 more shows. The first is Liza Pulman in a show titled ‘Liza Sings Streisand’ at the historic Wilton’s Music Hall. The other is a play titled ‘The Ferryman’ which has great reviews and is playing at the Gielgud Theatre in the West End.
I particularly love the fact that it is highly unlikely that we would have the opportunity to see any of these shows here in Australia and of course, the venues are unique to London.
