"Hello from the Gold Coast" bbunter's Profile
UPDATE - AUGUST 2013
Since I last wrote on this page I have added a trip to Las Vegas and Los Angeles with my Dad and am now planning my trip to this year's Aussie Meet in Western Australia. I'm really looking forward to that and to meeting some more VT members.
GOING BACK TO 2010 I STARTED MY FIRST HOME PAGE. Generally speaking everything I wrote then is still true. All that has changed is my age (I'm now 30) and the fact that I did indeed make that trip to the USA with my Dad. I keep promising my Mum (Maryimelda) that I will write some pages but as yet I have not kept that promise. Maybe one day soon.
So far in my 27 years I have travelled to Europe twice, to New Zealand and pretty extensively here in Oz. I am at present planning a trip to the West Coast of the USA with my Dad in 2011.
My Dad is English so he took my brother and I to England to visit our grandparents in 1990. I was only 7 years old but I can still remember most of it. I am a bridge freak and I was enthralled with all the bridges in the UK. I also really enjoyed my visit to the Bloody Tower.
In 2007 I returned to Europe, this time with my Mum who is also a member of VT (Maryimelda). On that trip we visited, Paris, Lourdes, Cannes, Genoa, Salzburg, Munich, Prague, Vienna, Venice, Pisa, Rome, Naples Pompeii, Sorrento, Positano, Palermo, Ireland and England. We had a great time and I was able to really enjoy a true "bridge fest" during that trip.
In 2009, I was off to Auckland, NZ for my cousin's wedding. Another great experience for me. I particularly liked trying the wines on Wahiki Island.
Here in Australia, I have travelled extensively around Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Hopefully 2011 will bring a trip for my Dad and I to West Coast USA. That's what I'm planning now and already, I am getting great advice and pointers from some of the members of VT.
When Mum and I flew to Europe we just happened to be in Singapore for a few hours at the same time as my Dad was there on his way back from visiting his parents in England. It was a long shot, but I found him and was able to spend a few minutes with him before we all had to head off to our respective boarding gates.
