... there as well as Maria's son Daniel who we have not seen since he was a baby. It didn't take long to catch up. The rest of the day was just relaxing. We'll be here for a few days.

We had emailed ahead to check it was okay to be picked up and a few minutes after we arrived our lift arrived, they didn't look like a Peter & Raewyn who would own a motel. That would be because they weren't, they were another English couple who had been staying and working with them ...

The unplanned trip

A travel blog entry by julesyscott


... for lunch. We ended u buying Gaz some new flip flops, sold to him by the fact that there is a bottle opener built into both soles....a gadget that is now used whenever an opportunity arises!
