About 2 yrs ago, while stitching on the Cromwell Reproduction Project, my friend Phyllis and I discovered that we both wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand. We decided then and there that we were going to go together. Our mini-group of two has since grown to five: Phyllis & Bill, Judy & Richard, and me. Initially our trip was going to be in 2008, but things intervened and the trip was rescheduled for 2009.
In January, 2009, we signed up with Overseas Adventure Travels for the November tour of Australia and New Zealand, with a pre-trip to Tasmania. We leave Oct. 28 and return Dec. 1.
In March, 2009 the preliminary flight itinerary arrived.
Now we're down to 213 days until travel time!
