Suitcase Plans, Take Two

Remember a few weeks ago, when I wrote about how my travel schedule went from zero to hero in a 10-day span?

No? Well then this might trigger a memory…

Why the passport?

There was one trip I didn’t put on that blog post, because I didn’t have the 100% non-refundable plane ticket in my hand yet. But I’m pretty sure they won’t take it away from me now.

Drumroll, please…

In two weeks from today, I’ll be landing in Melbourne, Australia for two weeks for The Presidents Cup. (WOOOO!)  

I’ll be running point on the social media coverage throughout the week, on both the Presidents Cup and PGA TOUR brands. I’m still pinching myself, because it’s an incredibly opportunity and I’m grateful to be added to the tournament team after so much planning has already gone into this event. It’s part of the reason my October has flown by so quickly — even though the PGA TOUR Playoffs completed last month, the strategy and preparation for Presidents Cup has overtaken any free time I may have gained in the (not-so) off-season.

I wouldn’t be doing my job, if I didn’t ask you to follow @PresidentsCup on Twitter and “like” the event on Facebook — but I’ll leave the rest of the work-related items off the blog at this point.

Who has tips, suggestions and friends in/around Melbourne that will come in handy over the two weeks that I’m down under? I extended my trip for a few days after the tournament finishes (runs Nov 15-20) and am hoping to drink wine, hold a koala, take a tour, and get some good runs in while I’m there. I’ll fly back Nov25, the day after Thanksgiving with a stop over in DFW (save me leftovers, Maria!) on my way back to Jax.

I really hope I can keep blogging before I leave, and even a note or two while I’m there (at least pictures!). But in case I don’t, leave a comment here or get in touch to share any tips or stories you have about Australia.
