"THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING OF OUR JOURNEY" topgunn's Profile
My wife Beth and I discovered the home exchange website about three years ago and have now decided to spread our wings and take advantage of our ability to get away every once in a while.
We organise the swap, thgen all we have to pay for is plane tickets and spending money. Accommodation is obviously taken care of.
So far we have exchanged to California, Hawaii, New York, spent a week on a 30 foot powercat in The Whitsundays and are shortly heading off to Carmel, Palm Springs, Mexico and San Diego.
We couldn't go to Vegas without having the quintessential Elvis wedding. We renewed our vows for our 10th wedding anniversary. A mates joke was a little photoshop of this photo . . . look my hair returns!
After travelling from Coast to Coast on our last USA adventure, it was great to spend a few days in Hawaii on the way home to Australia, just to wind down.
This photo is taken at Dukes Bar, a wonderful place to stop for a cocktail or five and watch the sun set
After Ice skating in Central Park, we found time to sit down for a photo on what was New Year's Eve, just before our attempt to hit Times Square for the New Year's celebrations . . . we left it too late to head into Broadway and to be honest, we couldn't get within 12 blocks of the ball dropping, penned in like animals and it was freezing!
Mustangs . . . you can get them for about $30,000 in the USA, in Australia it would set you back closer to $80,000 and there is only about a 10c in the dollar difference in the currency rate. Someone is making money!
Hired one to do the West Coast - San Diego to Monterey.
If only I could justify paying $500 for a game of golf. I can afford it, just can't bring myself to do it, especially the way I play. At least I know I would see plenty of the course and donate plenty of balls to the ocean. Last trip I had to settle for a bit of a look around
