trip to Australia Youve heard its a wonderful place youve read many guidebooks and feel cer tain youre ready to go Everyone you know has traveled there by plane They say it can be a turbu lent flight with occasional rough landings but you can look forward to being pampered on the trip So you go to the airport and ask the ticket agent for a ticket to Aus tralia All around you excited peo ple are boarding planes for Aus tralia It seems there is no seat for you youll have to wait for the next flight Impatient but anticipating a wonderful trip you wait and wait and wait Flights to Australia continue to come and go People say silly things like Relax Youll get on a flight Other people actually get on a plane and then cancel their trip to which you cry Its not fair After a long time the ticket agent tells you Im sorry were not going to be able to get you on a plane to Australia Perhaps you should think about going by By boatl you say Going by boat will take a very long time and it costs a great deal of money I real ly had my heart set on going by So you go home and think about not going to Australia at all You wonder if Australia will be as beautiful if you approach it by sea rather than by air But you have long dreamed of this wonderful place and finally you decide to trav el by boat It is a long trip many months over many rough seas No one pam pers you You wonder if you will ever see Australia Meanwhile your friends have flown back and forth to Australia two or three more times marveling about each trip Then one glorious day the boat docks in Australia It is more exquisite than you ever imagined and the beauty is magnified by your long days at sea You have made many wonderful friends during your voyage and you find yourself comparing stories with others who also traveled by sea rather than by air People continue to fly to Aus tralia as often as they like but you are able to travel only once perhaps twice Some say things like Oh be glad you didnt fly My flight was horrible traveling by sea is so You will always wonder what it would have been like to fly to Aus tralia Still you know God blessed you with a special appreciation of Australia and the
