We have been exploring Australia for 2 years and originally expected to return home to Brisbane last month but the gypsy life has become a great love!
With a visit to Sheila's family due, we explored the option of combining an extended overseas trip with that visit; we realised that we had enough FF points to get two round-the-world air tickets and that is what we did.
So on November 7 we fly to Buenos Aires for our Argentinian adventure, then to Dallas for a big two days and onto San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital city where we will spend time with Sheila's family, take a Caribbean cruise and explore the island.
Late in February 2012 we disembark in Madrid and travel around Spain, Portugal and the Greek Islands for three months. Five days in Dubai, a quick stop in Hong Kong and then back home at the end of May.
At this stage we intend returning to the north of WA when we get back to Australia.
www.airbnb.com has enabled us to get classy, cheap accommodation while away and that has ensured that we continue to travel economically.
www.tripadvisor.com has been a wonderful source of travel information and we have enjoyed researching our destinations.
Sheila's first language is Spanish and this will be a big plus. Kath is expecting to be drowned in Spanish but not too hopeful of understanding too much!!!!
We will continue the blog as we travel.
