This morning I got to meet my first o'seas A.netter. Janni (aka JAP - or whatever these days )  Wink on QF02, LHR via BK arriving at 6.29am.

All was well to meet up with her at QF domestic terminal 3 for her connection to Canberra at 8.10am, until........... oops!  Wow! QF lost her bag in transit between International and Domestic T3 !

Major panic and lots of mobile phone calls between us, until QF rescheduled her on a later connecting flight - which wasn't so bad, as they "did" find the bag, and it gave us a little more time to "say hi" and chat for a while before she left on the rest of her journey.

Was fun meeting someone for the very first time, and they were cleaning their teeth!  Big grin - still after that time in transit mine would be a bit furry too  Smile. She will probably kill me for this haa haa.

I think she got her wish....... "Not another 734  boggled " - she discovered a Dash-8 instead  Smile which was her wish come true. Maybe made up for the baggage screw-up.

I think she got there - haven't heard yet. But with all the phone calls - her battery is probably in need of a recharge - lol

LOL there must have a curse on her. Always getting baggage lost on trips. Nice to hear she arrived safely!

So Australians... how do your holidays work out? I mean if your Christmas and summer holidays are combined in Dec and Jan, how long are your holidays during your winter in the middle of the year?

Ummmmmmmm - for most of us there is no Winter holiday at all. Our "biggie" is during the height of summer - December thru to Early February.

Then again, if you are self employed -stuff that  Sad - there is no time for a bloody holiday. I'm here now coz it's one of 3 days off i've given myself (Whoopee - NOT  Sad )

school kids get 6 weeks at christmas starting approx 20th dec until appox 30th jan. They also get 2 weeks in april(easter) 2 weeks in july(our winter) and 2 more weeks in october.
As for the working population the average annual leave is 4 weeks a year.
Unless of course like KiwiTEAL said you have your own bisiness.
Otherwise it is first in best dressed when it comes to taking your leave from your employer.
Today I am at work and spent most of it here on a.net...

P.S. and CBR IS a hole.

You're not wrong about that - however, I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that if I want to get a promotion fairly quickly where I work (public service) than I'll have to move up there sooner or later...............

Yes, but our standards are to high. The Queen usually has to spend a week in Quarantine before we let her in.

Summer holidays...good.

LOL..must be true. When I came back from BLR in September, they didn't let me bring in a bottle of Milo...because it contained milk powder and the lady said something about mad cow disease and milk powder....wtf?

Anyway..good to hear that Janni made it safely here.

I mobiled Janni and told her I started a thread about her trip - she warned me about the ****** that would contribute on here. She does have a great sense of humour!  Smile

.She complemented TedAce on getting in so quickly too  Big grin

If she is in Southern Canberra, they're still waiting for Electricty. They're yet to even hear about Television and Radio let alone, Computers, the Internet. Last time I was down there, someone was plowing their field using a donkey.

From another southern hemisphere country...
That is about the same length break over December as here but our schools closed around December 1st and go back around Jan 15th. They also get 2 weeks in April, 2 weeks in July and 2 weeks in October. Public schools have 4 terms and private schools 3, and the dates obviously vary.

Our average worker's annual leave is 4 weeks as well. Winter holiday isn't usually done unless you go to the northern hemisphere!



After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

As others have already said the winter holidays are almost non-existant but studenst get an awesome holiday in the summer. Being a year 12 leaver I finished in mid November this year and UNI starts half way through Feb.
