Have you ever heard of an airline imposing a 7 kg (15 lb) weight limit for carry-on items? I reckon I’ve read some fine print here or there, or seen those box outlines by check in counters with a sign asking “Does your carry-on bag fit in here?” (implying a maximum bag size).

I spent much of my three days in Hobart recovering from either the roadtrip or the Overland Track. Between my intense need for chillaxation and the crummy weather at the tail end of my Tassie trip, I wasn’t quite in sightseeing mode in Hobart.
Along with a Great Barrier Reef scenic flight, a Whitsundays sailing trip was one of those *Australia Must-Dos* that I ignored when I was here back in 2006 – partially because I was too busy galavanting in the Outback instead, but mostly I was hesitant to test my propensity for motion sickness.
