So the holidays are coming and I need to devise a way to get to California and the Canadian Rockies, plus my cousin lives in Austria now and who wouldn’t want to take advantage of that, plus we owe Peter’s Italian family a visit since none of them made it to the wedding, plus there are his relatives in Fiji, but… Tim Blair:

Brief travel notes: now is a really great time for Australians to visit the US because flights have so few people on them and you can achieve business-class levels of space while riding in economy.

Also, now is a really great time for Americans to visit Australia because the stray coins you find in your car can buy a whole Tasmania.

First things first, eh?
