At last we get to sing that song again….. “On the road again..la lal la la la on the road again. Come on, you all know the tune.
Yep, we are happy little campers, all 3 of us, we once again have Gail aboard, and we are heading off on our first real Aussie trip.
We left home on the 14th June, as that was the earliest we could do our voting before leaving. Our first night was spen...Read Full Post »

Hello and greetings.... yes we are still home in Aus, and have been very busy in the 8 months we have been home. Aside from the time spent getting our bathroom renovated and floors re-tiled, we have had the Garden Gallery open every weekend since December. We have now added more seating areas, included a fire-pit area and generally just expanded slightly. You can check it out here under '...Read Full Post »

Flying from Greece back to London via Munich, making a short flight longer, we got a hotel right next to Heathrow airport. (yes it was well sound-proofed)!!
With only 3 days in London before heading home, our first day was spent exploring. We took trains to get around, and it was quite a novelty for us. When we arrived at our first underground platform, we found a soul group playing, one or two of them being originals from the group Supremes many years ago. On our way back, as the tra...Read Full Post »

Here we are back in Greece. The land of the Greek Gods!!!
Our first part of the Greece adventure was held on Agean island. One of the smaller, and closer islands from the port of Pireas. After spending half a day in the port town of Pireas, you soon realise that this is really not a holiday destination, so we b...Read Full Post »

Our time in Kenya was very short this time, mainly to visit our families here for the last time.
We had spent a few days in Greece before hand, but i will include that later after we return there on the the return journey.
The day we arrived in Nairobi our hired landrover was not yet ready, they were replacing wheel bearings, so we had someone pick us up from the airport and driv...Read Full Post »

What a interesting month this has been. We started our journey in Wales, staying with some good friends we met years ago in Namibia. They have turned their old stables into a beautiful, roomy & relaxing cottage which can take up to 4 people. A real credit to them, it is peaceful, modern, yet fits in with the rustic surroundings which makes Wales so special. We also head to north of Wales to Snowdonia for a few days so Sara could do her zip-line adventure. This is where ...Read Full Post »

Our last day before we leave America... 3 months on the road here, and what a lot we have seen.
New York showed us Niagra Falls, , which is in the state of New York, which is quite a way from New York City!!
The Niagra falls surprised us a bit, cause where you always think that they are one giant fall... well in fact, IT'S NOT, there are two major falls, (and a smaller one), but the main one that you always see in pictures etc, is called Horseshoe Falls, and you really have ...Read Full Post »

Back on line…. In this update up will just touch on the places we have been.
Still in Memphis, we stopped at Lorraine Hotel, the spot where Martin Luther King Jr. was shot dead on April 4th 1968. Next, we also stopped by the Blues Hall of Fame which was not far from Lorraine Hotel. This is certainly the old side of town, and to keep it looking that way, anyone...Read Full Post »

Well, been a busy time lately. Here are the short stories behind the pics of the extra albums I put in.
Texas. Well, the main thing to acknowledge here was that Texas was being beaten by huge storms and tornadoes. The fact that they have been in a 5 year drought, has now been overcome with huge floods & tornadoes. On a personal level, we have been fortunate enough to generally be one day ahead of the really bad stuff.

Yep, sounds like a lot of travel, but some of these states were crossed within a day or two. I will try to give you the short, quick version.
Thinking we were now finished with the snow, we were wrong, and driving out of south Dakato we found ourselves in a full blown blizzard. Not a lot of fun but we got there. We did not spend long in Colarado and bypassed Denver all together. but, we did find the site where Buffalo Bill is actually buried, and once again,...Read Full Post »
