I'm off to do noble battle with surly visa beasts.
Actually, I've heard the British High Commission in Canberra is really friendly and quick.
However, I've decided it might also be prudent to get visas for a number of other places I'd like to visit before leaving the country. People warn me that most of Eastern Europe still has a decidely communist-era approach to the issue of visas and their inspection at borders ...
Anyway, just trying to finish off my paperwork for a 4 year entry permit to the UK based on my mother's father being a UK citizen. Had it been my father's father I could get a UK passport.
Why did my parents not have the sense to get me born in the UK and save all this mucking about?
Much to report about the end of my time in Melbourne/the return to Canberra, but later.
