A very pleasant stay! Owners were really nice and made you feel right at home. The hostel is clean, close to the supermarket and the centre.

... dropped us at the airport where we also met Joan, Oli's mum who came to wave him off.

Oli was bouncing off the walls excited, so excited I think it was hard for him to comprehend or take things in - poor wee possum. As was his usual self he was talking a hundred miles an hour with no pauses. Correction, he was not talking, he was yelling LOL. He handled the experience like a ...

... grass and have a great time. There are different 'acts' on singing, playing guitar etc... So entertainment is provided ( Ben and Dave jamming session here you come lol ). And, which I think is a good thing, no alcohol is allowed so perfect for families. It was lovely ( I must write a letter to Trafford Council suggesting we start one on Chassen Road park ) and when we got back to Caths we chatted for quite a while, way past our bedtime, and then hit the sack and was unconscious within ...

In Gisbourn we went to the lighthouse at the most easternly point, fed stingrays, had a beer and shared stories around the fire on the beach - we then got up at the crack of dawn and watched the very first sunrise of Tuesday morning just meters away from our lodge. The rest of the week ...

... this involved a very long breakfast. Then our rooms had all checked out and we got on to cleaning them. Which really doesn't take the four of us long to do at all. After a slow morning of hanging around we decided to have another go at monopoly. Which seemed like a good idea at the time, and then as soon as we started we all got pretty bored, pretty quick.
