Russ, Susan and the boys
28 April 2012: Just back from another family experience, this time in Hong Kong (where we used to live in the '90s) and China. As usual we all loved it. We've already told the boys that we are leaving them to do Europe and the UK themselves. They won't want us there to cramp their style by the time they do their OE anyway.
But that still leaves some fairly major parts of the planet still to be explored by the Travelbugs if we can swing it. It is getting hard to fit in around various activities we are all involved in, but I'm pretty sure the boys will turn up as long as we are paying.
That gives me hope that South America might still happen before its too late. Not that there aren't also lots of other places on the list. Any suggestions and donations gratefully received.
Anyway, I look forward to your comments and feel free to pass it on.
8 February 2010: Its not like we have been sitting at home for nearly three years, and no, we don't live under a rock. We actually live in one of the best places in the world. But it just didn't seem right to skite about trips to Aussie and Fiji and other parts of New Zealand, which is where we have had family holidays in between times. The thing about travelling to more far-flung places is that you can lie a bit about what you saw and there aren't as many people who can call your bluff. Not that I tell fibs in my blogs. Its just that, why would you let the facts get in the way of a good story.
Anyway this time we are going to Africa. We'll arrive Joburg then go straight to Cape Town the same day (which happens to be my birthday - happy birthday Russell, 21 yet again) to stay with my brother Jeff and sister in law Cornel and their girls Johanni and Beth. We'll trip around from there for about two weeks then head back up to Joburg, get an RV just like we did in the States last time, and spend five days in Kruger Park narrowly avoiding highly dangerous beasts of all descriptions Then we'll head back and fly out to Singapore (where I hope to catch up with Gazza) enroute back to Godzone.
6 June 2007: We're off on a trip to the States to see our friends Jim & Laura and their kids in Oregon and then we're going to cruise right down through California in an RV. We'll take in at least San Francisco, Tahoe, Yosemite, the coast from Santa Cruz right down to LA, and while we're in LA we'll do Disneyland, Universal Studios etc and watch the Dodgers play the Florida Marlins if we can work out how to get some tickets. Its going to be fun and we're all looking forward to it. Getting cooler at home so great timing, then when we get back skiing will have started. Like I said, great timing.
