Rendezvous of Venus, Jupiter and the Moon

A few months ago, my Krisflyer points were expiring, so I decided to redeem a return ticket to the furthest place which my points will let me. This turned out to be Perth, Western Australia. I also asked a long time friend of mine, Clarence, who agreed to come along as well. The trip itself […]
