New York






Last winter, idly typing dreams into the Qantas website, I found a very cheap ticket, so cheap it was impossible to refuse; half price to North America. I saved a search (Adelaide – New York – San Francisco – Adelaide) and agonized for 24 hours. I can’t afford this trip. I’m in the final throes of my PhD, it is insanity to travel until it’s finished. Who could housesit? October/November is a silly time to be in North America. Why there, and not somewhere further up the wishlist? I was channelling Woody Allen, angsting and fretting. And then a strange calm descended, and I thought, ‘do it’. And so I did.
