Sydney Long at the NGA

If it wasn’t for the fact that my lovely friend Sonja has a new job as a librarian at the National Gallery of Australia, I wouldn’t know that there was a Sydney Long exhibition on at the NGA.

When we received our itinerary for the Human Brochure the other day, I was pretty excited to notice that we have a couple of hours free on the Saturday afternoon, hopefully giving me time to have a good catch up with Sonja as it’s been quite some time since we last saw each other.

It was her lovely signature banner that caught my eye. So I must squeeze in this exhibition somewhere too. Friday afternoon?

The itinerary is here

I received our human brochure itinerary last night and wowee it’s action packed and it looks amazing. Here’s a quick run down of what our weekend is looking like.

Head back to the hotel by 3:30

This coming weekend looks like it’s going to be a WHOLE lot of fun. This time, I’m going to remember to take my camera away with me.

I’ve put together a list on twitter of the places that we’re going that tweet, you can find it here.

 

You’re coming to Canberra!

On the 1st of October I was pretty excited to see this email in my inbox:

I’m taking Michael along with me, so perhaps you’ll find him blogging as well over at The Adventures of Michael Roelink. For a little more information about the Human Brochure experience, have a look at this video.

All I can say is thank you to Australian Capital Tourism. Our itineraries are going to be sent out in email today, and I can’t wait. I think I’ve checked my email about 500 times.
