27 days until Europe and then some time later South America! Quit my job to have a holiday before a holiday. Being unemployed is a weird feeling.

Booked my tickets with Emirates yesterday from Sydney to London.
Leave Syd on 28th July, 6am.
Return 26th Aug at 10:30pm.

I'm going to spend about a week in London for the Olympics with my brother who lives there and also catching up with about a thousand people. Then doing 3 weeks in Croatia. I just need to find good flights to/from Split-London, Sky Scanner the best for that?

Check out Easyjet, or Croatian Airlines are your best bet mate.

Lack of competition won't help either..not that many options unless perhaps you transit via another city.

EasyJet seems the best. Croatia and others don't have the connections that I need.

What's the luggage weight limit on EasyJet? I've got 30kg on Emirates but that's useless unless I have a decent amount of the smaller carrier within Europe.

EDIT - Seems it's 20kg. Damn it. I'll have to cut some stuff to stay below since I'm not keen on paying insane extra charges for more kilos.
In terms of EasyJet hold luggage, when I book a return trip it only show one bag at 32 pounds. Now, is this for just one way or for the return as well?

Heading back to the US in October for 8 weeks.

LA > San Fran > Miami > Orlando > Boston > New York > Philly > Washington > Baltimore > Detroit > Chicago > New Orleans > Las Vegas > LA

All ready bought tickets for 49ers vs NY Giants @ Candlestick Park, NY Jets vs Miami Dolphins @ MetLife Stadium, LSU vs Mississippi @ Tiger Stadium (College football) and Michigan Wolverines vs NorthWestern @ Michigan Stadium (College football). Will sought out some NBA and NHL matches while we're there.

Disneyworld parks, universal studios, Push bikes around SF, Jazz bars in New Orleans, Hip-Hop tour through The Bronx, 'The Wire' tour through Baltimore (my favourite TV show), Magic Mountain, Knotts Berry Farm, Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam are amongst a heap of activities we have planned. Can't Wait!

Yeah stubhub for the college games and ticketmaster for the NFL matches.

Payed $350 each for the Niners tickets and that includes a 3 hour tail gate before the match with drinks and food and past players. Hoping Rice or Montana will be in attendance.

The Swamp, that's the Gators innit?

My brothers a huge Florida Gators fan and one of their games was originally in our plans but it seemed like too much of a stuff around to get to.

edit - Actually scrap that. Just asked him, he's a Florida State fan.

Nice! Red Sox, Yankees would be awesome.

Spewin' we won't be able to go any MLB matches. Might see if we can do a tour of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field though.

Yeah, as I won't be seeing games at either of those fields (not on when I'm in town) I'll be doing both tours. I wish I could see Yankees @ Fenway...that would be spesh!
