Today I start my blog, well really it started last year when I first decided to go to OZ. After a great 50th birthday for a very good friend, Barbara made an interest in coming with me. Hooray, a like minded person who wants to travel. It wasn't until our summer reunion gathering that we made firmer commitments to travel together. By November 2011 after searching on the internet and chatting to travel agents, we made our booking for the flights. No going back now.
Time wise, the travel is tight with just under 5 weeks to achieve. Barbara had to negotiate her time off, for me we get 6 weeks holiday anyway being school holidays.
After in-depth research our plan was to fly into Australia via Sydney, to take a Greyhound bus around that would maximise a view of the areas. From a suggestion from Suzanne the Travel Agent, Trailfinders at Manchester we had options for a stop over and we chose Hong Kong going out and San Francisco going home. Then another suggestion from Suzanne that as we are so close to New Zealand, why not stop over. So now we have Auckland on our Itinerary.
