Oh Oh! Rather More than 80 Days …. Again!



This time we’re setting a new record for us, 91 days from leaving Perth, to being back in our own bed again.


After catching up with much-loved family in NSW and Victoria, we’ll be flying from Melbourne to Cairo via Dubai, spending about a week in Egypt before embarking on a 9-day sailing trip to Greece via the Suez Canal, then the South and North of France for around a month with brief side trips to Belgium and Switzerland, before seeing in the French Open in Paris, then London for a week and back home to Perth.


All arranged (and scrupulously spreadsheeted) by John “Vasco” Sutherland, the family “travel agent” 🙂


Since the only people reading this will probably be family after we’re dead, we hope it reminds you of the fun we had and the memories we made together in this last part of our life.
