Living in an isolated country like Australia I think everyone had experienced a good friend or family going to live on the other side of the world. I did it to my family when I was 17 years old and let's not mention Gareth's trip to Australia back in 2002 because that might be the longest 'holiday' anyone has ever been on.
Taking someone out to Tullamarine is almost a bit of a ritual, the awkward hanging around, the trying not to cry when saying goodbye, the looking at the duty free and pretending to be interested, the pang that you should be going overseas and finally the shock of paying $30 for an hour or so of parking. We can only hope they will send us a postcard, but speaking from experience you always write the postcard out then never get the stamps to send it.
