Weird and wonderful travel

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 20 Jun 2010 | Views [431]

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 15 Jun 2010 | Views [345]

EGYPT | Saturday, 5 Jun 2010 | Views [988]

It's that time of the year - John and I are suffering from PMS: packing, moving, storing. I thought I was over that particular ailment, but no! It has struck again. And we have a month to go... I have a few lists in my head - it's probably ... Read more >
