Up the Mekong with my granddaughters

My granddaughters are teenagers who live on a different island to me. Although we are a close family and they used often to come and stay with me, as they have grown older, their friends have become more important and I felt that we were growing apart. I knew that once they were at university the gap would widen. While at Calder & Lawson I picked up a booklet on a cruise on the Mekong River. The first thing I noticed was that the ship was called La Marguerite – my mother’s name. Good start.

Melbourne at night

Flew into Melbourne today, coming from 24 degrees to 13 was not nice! Went up Eureka Skydeck to experience 'the edge' - the view was insane! Would highly recommend this to all.

Conquering the Harbour Bridge

I conquered the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb this morning - the history and views are stunning! Finished the day off with a very relaxing harbour cruise on the Captain Cook - 24 degrees today! Just like a summers day.

The Grand Bazaar

No trip to Istanbul is complete without a stop at the Grand Bazaar, and of course I shopped up a storm!
