New York, Friday 8 July

USA | Friday, 8 Jul 2016 | Views [100]

So much to do and this is our last day. We started with a ride on the subway to a phantom station (a 2nd City Hall) which was quite spooky as you have to stay on the train after the last stop on the line and just wait. The girls went and did a bit of ... Read more >

The longest day in the world.  Going back over the date line meant our day was 38 hours long.  Real time travel! But made it safely to New York via Los Angeles. Our motel is nice. Went for a wander to try and clear our tired heads and got our ... Read more >

Sydney, Tuesday 28 June

USA | Tuesday, 28 Jun 2016 | Views [135]

Left Albury on the afternoon flight which was uneventful, along with the transfer to our motel. Nice room. Interesting restaurant. While the food was tasty and reasonable, the waiter was hilarious. Basil Fawlty would have been proud

Sydney, Wednesday April 22

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 22 Apr 2015 | Views [218]

Flew all night with not much sleep so got into Sydney fairly tired.  Due to electrical storms we were an hour late landing which meant we missed our connecting flight! Bother!! The next flight out after the 8.15 one is the 3.30 one. Bother again.... Read more >

VIETNAM | Thursday, 16 Apr 2015 | Views [186]

Vietnam, Wednesday April 15

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 15 Apr 2015 | Views [218]

The day started early as we were off to Halong Bay.  It is a three and 1/2 hour drive each way.  Pleasant enough trip, with the scenery changing and the company good.  Getting out of Hanoi was probably the toughest bit.  Like much ... Read more >
