    When I was a kid, I had a great globe, and one of the things I thought would be fun to do is to visit Easter Island at Christmas and Christmas Island at Easter. In the same year.

    I've decided 2014 is the year.

    I don't really have firmer plans than that, yet, but for Christmas Island it seems arriving the Thursday before Easter and departing the following Monday would be a good time.

    And I know there are TWO Christmas Islands if you count Kirimati, but I mean the one Northwest of Perth in the Indian Ocean. I will also be visiting Kirimati on this trip if anyone else is interested, but those dates are more dodgy.

    I know it's a long lead time, but wanted to give y'all some time to think about it.

    The funding for the service is reviewed from time to time. I don't know when the next review is due, but something to bear in mind. Last time there was a change of operator and schedule.
