Getting ready

Preparing for our trip has been the most complex, time consuming and exhausting of anything we have done before. We could, of course have opted for a package tour but as you will all know, this isn't our style. So it has all been done manually. We had to arrange for our hotel before we could...

Visiting Where Ollie Grew Up and Meeting New Family

Toronto to Cockshutt

The idea had been to get to Toronto and go up the CN Tower. However, as we approached the centre the traffic slowed to a crawl; the Blue Jays were playing in the sports centre next to the tower. The car parks were full, but TomTom managed to find us one close by. It started to rain as we got...

Afterthoughts - questions I have been asked

Would I use BA again? Not if there were alternatives and a no huge difference in price. In fact, not unless I was desperate. Which did you prefer; Australia or New Zealand? I have been struck by the number of people whose first question this has been. Of course the answer is that they...
