Australians Invade Sunny Destinations
August 1st, 2007

Travel.com reports that bookings to sunny destinations overseas by the Australian have increased as much as 200per cent on the same period last year. The company’s bookings to Malaysia increased 267per cent, Kuala Lumpur 250per cent, Bali 200per cent, Thailand 28per cent and Honolulu 20per cent. Bookings to the Gold and Sunshine coasts, Cairns and Darwin rose as much as 100per cent on the same period last year.

This significant increase happens due to harsh winter that hit some parts of Australia, with average single digit temprature in Sydney, the skyrocketed demand on warm sunny sanctuary is a predictable consequence.

The tropical beaches and Asia-Pacific resorts are now experiencing their best seasons ever, Karsten Horne, of Sydney-based Reho Travel, says the cold snap has created demand for last-minute getaways. “People are seeking the sun – but not always where you might think,” he says.

New mum Davenport to return to singles in Bali
July 31st, 2007

Former world number one Lindsay Davenport will juggle motherhood and professional tennis by returning to singles action at the WTA event in Bali in September, organisers told Reuters on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old quit the tour at the end of 2006 having missed much of the year with a back injury. She gave birth to a son, Jagger, in June.

An Olympic gold medallist and three-times a grand slam tournament winner, Davenport said last year that she could not imagine playing again but the lure of the Tour has proved too great.

“I’m excited to be playing Bali once again,” Davenport said in a statement released by organisers of the event which starts Sept 10.

“It’s such a beautiful environment and everyone is so friendly and supportive of all the players. It’s always a great week and a lot of fun.

“I’ve really enjoyed playing the tournament in the past and feel it’s the perfect place for me to begin playing singles again.”

The American has not competed on the WTA Tour since reaching the Beijing quarter-finals in September 2006.
