A few years ago now, I made a list of things I hadn't done. The second item on that list was "left the country".
Well, today is my 30-and-one-half birthday, and next week I leave Australia's territorial waters for the first time. I'm spending 3 days on a junket in Austin, Texas for SXSW. Then I fly to JFK airport, New York — the city I've spent ten thousand words describing in various essays — and check into the Chelsea Hotel (yes, that one) on March 10th for ten nights.
On St Paddy's Day, I'll be drinking and singing in Boston.
But the rest of it? I haven't really planned anything. Being a free software advocate, I thought I might try open-sourcing my New York itinerary. Where should I go? What should I do?
I know this blog doesn't have a huge readership anymore, so this exercise might be a flop. But if you could, help me fill in the blanks. I probably need to finalise this by Saturday.
The plan so far:
Mar 10: Texas to NYC.
Mar 17: Lucky Star bus to Boston, 7am, St Paddy's Day (drinking venue suggestions welcomed)
Mar 18: Return to New York, 8am, and sleep
Mar 21: NYC to MEL.
