It looks like it will be a fantastic trip, with a high probability of seeing the eclipse, due to the sunny climate down there. Just remember to resist the urge to play with any spiders you might encounter. Australia has the most poisonous spiders on the planet.
Travellers sometime get bored. So I did a puzzle that might help pass the time on the way down to Australia. It is in the form of a question.
What animal can apply the most pressure per square unit of measurement with its' teeth? (No cheating using Google, Wikipedia, or Watson if you work for IBM.)
(I made myself dizzy.)
