Meow aka Happy-Go-Lucky's down under trip

Discussion in 'Global Trip Reports' started by DavidFL, Jun 7, 2011.

  1. The master plan to escape the heat & smoke at the worst time of the year 2nd half of March, as in 2010 we both got sick with bad sinus infections, no voice every morning. And if you're a singer with an amazing voice like Meow that's no good.

    So we fled the scene......
    And the day after we left Cnx it became cold & wet with unseasonal weather. The luck of the game. But we both had a fabulous time in OZ - "just visiting."

    Anyway onward with some photos. Most of them are of Meow, as this holiday was more for her, as the last & first time she was in OZ it was for my dear father's funeral. Not such a pleasant time or fun holiday for Meow.
