We knew we wanted to get somewhere this year, preferably Europe. Sue had been instructed to take long service leave from her work so 4 weeks seemed like an appropriate length. To start to plan our trip we needed to decide what sort of holiday we wanted. We both agreed that we are done with… Continue reading Apps and websites to help plan our next adventure… Europe June 2018
Another cloudy start to the day, but not for long. This was possibly the best weather day yet and the Taswegians all were parading around in their t-shirts! You will see by our pics that we QLDers are not quite that tough – and it was the last chance to wear any winter stuff as… Continue reading Ten Days Tasting Tasmania: Huon to the Heights of Wellington

Surprisingly there were lots of trucks… Continue reading Ten Days Tasting Tasmania: Across the Tippy Top
