The New Year is here and we are planning our next adventures.
I look back at our holidays last year. The trip to France and Spain in August was wonderful. Check the stories out in earlier posts. Then our recent trip to Cambodia to see Pete and Elena and celebrate their engagement was amazing.
As I sit on the beach chatting to friends we share stories of last years travel and what’s on our bucket list for this year.
Lea fancies Norway and Russia and as does Jill. Two friends both leaning towards the same places! Susie is looking at India and maybe a wedding. Carmel will be going back to Sri Lanka and India for work. And the Maitlands have a few little holidays and surprise surprise another swim trek. This time to Montenegro. We’ll follow up with a week or two in my favourite country – Italy. This time in the heel of the country – arriving in Bari and heading south to Otranto and holidaying the way Italians do.
Other little holidays or ‘getaways’ this year include. Melbourne for Australia Day and perhaps a night at the tennis. Another visit in February to Melbourne with friends for the Edinburgh Tattoo. Yes it’s coming to Melbourne!
Then in April, New Zealand with Chris and Jill Wilson to visit friends from our Greece swim trek. Steve is braving the cool waters of Auckland and doing a swim with Kim and David. We’ll also visit the area called the Coramandel.
We head to Sydney for niece Pips wedding to Hugh in April and then nephew Patrick’s wedding to Lauren in Port Macquarie in May. Hopefully we’ll be able to call into Crescent Head to visit the McGregors.
By June we’ll be preparing for our holiday swimming in Montenegro and touring Puglia.
Maybe the USA in October to visit our swim trekking friends and sample the wines near Lodi where Jordan’s parents live.
Then in December it’s back to beautiful Cambodia for Peter and Elena’s wedding. It’s on Dec 20. The date they met and the date two years later they got engaged. We can’t wait.
So that’s it’s for holidays at the moment. Lots to look forward to.
