ATTENTION AUSTRALIA TRAVELERS: This WEDNESDAY NIGHT, at 6:00pm, we are having a LUGGAGE / PACKING and TRAVEL WORKSHOP at the incredible Palm Desert Luggage Store, IT'S IN THE BAG (in the Desert Crossing Shopping Center...Hwy. 111 and FRED WARING).

So, as you know, Mr. E travels for fun whenever possible. About a year and a half ago, while on a yacht in Langkawi, Malaysia, he met a terrific family from Sydney...friendship ensued and this summer, we all met and became better friends...through that friendship, Mr. E has been able to procure tickets to the NEWEST, HOTTEST, MOST FABULOUS and FAMILY FRIENDLY SPOT FOR YOUR NEW YEARS EVE...The BARANGAROO HEADLANDS PARK! Here is the weblink:
When we are in Sydney, we have a few dinners that we will receive $20AUD 'cash handout'! Since the VIBE HOTEL (totally sold out for our dates we're staying there) is only TWO blocks (less than 5 minute walk) from the famous WORLD SQUARE MALL, Mr. E suggests that you dine in the MALL FOOD COURT, or one of the small, cool ethnic places on PITT or GEORGE Streets (Mr. E's favorite is MASALA BOWL on Pitt Street...google or yelp it). Here is the link to WORLD SQUARE and its RESTAURANTS:
For our LA BOHEME (opening night of Opera Australia...this is VERY exciting) night, we will be WALKING THERE, grabbing dinner on the way! We can wear our PERFORMANCE CLOTHES that day for the show AND for the opera! We are SO EXCITED TO SHARE THIS WITH OUR TOUR MEMBERS!!!! Here's the link for the show that we will be seeing:
SPENDING MONEY: We suggest that EACH TRAVELER bring $250 for LUNCHES and GIFTS. Please BUDGET YOUR MONEY SO IT LASTS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE TRIP.
Andrew Eisenmann, AKA, Mr. E is writing this blog about RMHS CHOIR TRIPS and TOURS! We've been to CHICAGO, LOS ANGELES and SYDNEY (Australia) together...WHERE WILL WE BE SINGING NEXT?
