Help needed please. Im travelling to a friends wedding in Brisbane in September. I will be going alone as the kids are too young for the 30hr flight and the missus will not leave them with the out-laws. So i have agreed to go alone Im only going for a week though and am about to book my flights ....here is the itinery - Manchester depart 20.50 on the 7th Dubai arrive 07.00 on the 8th Dubai Depart 08.45 on the 8th Brisbane Arrive 07:00 on the 9th On the way back Brisbane depart 20.05 on the 15th Dubai arrive 06:00 on the 16th Dubai depart 07.55 on the 16th Man arrive 12.25 on the 16th Does anyone know what the best way of beating the jet lag on this journey would be .... i know there are theories about when to sleep and when not to sleep etc so if you have any advice i would be grateful. Also ...possibly a stoooopid question - do i need a visa or anything for Oz or just the bog standard turn up at the airport with a suitcase full of dodgy hawaian shirts and a passport will do?
