I’ve been saving up for some time and today after weeks of planning I booked my plane ticket to Melbourne and I will be flying out to Melbourne on the Day the Australian Open starts!
I’m lucky to be staying with family who live just outside Melbourne and have figured out already the train I need to get to the open.
The tickets don’t go on sale until early October but my plan is to get 5 days of tickets with my final day at the tennis being 24th of January, the ladies semi-finals before I fly home on the 27th of January.
I’m incredibly excited to be going to Australia and am already planning all my pre-holiday shopping as I suppose getting factor 30 sun cream in England during December might be a little difficult!
The flight itself is around 23 hours, I’ve only ever flown twice before in my life to Barcelona and never on my own but it’s an experience I could not turn down and if I did I’d be disappointed.
Expect photos, videos and much more of the Happy Slam!
See you in 173 days Melbourne!
