Home from my big adventure!


Just got back from a wonderful trip to OZ/ NZ 1 week in Sydney doing all the touristy things Opera House Blue Mountains 3 sisters Hunters Valley then a 13 night cruise to New Zealand it was brilliant waking up in a different place everyday seen some stunning sites took cable cars skyline cars trains sailed up the Fjordland National Park through the Milford Sound which was breathtaking no photos I took would really do either country justice they are both seen to be believed countries.

I feel so blessed to have had the experience with good company and to have met so many lovely people but have to say it’s good to be home even though it hasn’t stopped raining here in Wales since I arrived back hope your all well and looking forward to the festive season Merry Christmas all 🎄🥂🍫 🙂

It sounds wonderful to me and I also look forward to seeing your photos.
No matter how much you enjoyed it, there is something so nice about getting back home, even in the rain!

Thank you all for your lovely coments Steragram I did feel the jet lag dropping off to sleep quite a lot but was still on a high thinking about what we have seen Diane yes it’s good to know we can share many things on this forum from our garden highs and lows and some of our live adventures Waddy the cruise was great but next
time I would think about going from maybe Southampton as the longhaul flight was just that but was worth it as a ones in a life time trip to see those countries .

What wonderful memories you will have. They will keep you warm when you're out in the wet Welsh countryside. (Good job we have webbed feet in Wales !!)
