SOME INTERESTING AUSTRALIAN PAGES
NEW SOUTH WALES
From our Perth base we have visited many countries and cities in South East Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand including Puket, Hong Kong,Bali, Phillipines. All fabulous places and people.In 1993 we visited Europe for 8 weeks, England, Scotland, Spain, France and Switzland. Most enjoyable but only scratched the surface.
Australia being our home country has not been overlooked and we have visited most parts of the country.
During AUGUST 2009 we visited The North West of Western Australia and the Northern Territory. A very rugged and beautiful part of Australia which I believe is a "Hidden Gem". Tourism is rapidly expanding in the Kimberley catering for all travellers from backpackers to those who can afford the luxury yachts which cruise the beautiful coast and into the many rivers.
Most of our time was in the NT and what a fabulous destination it is. We visited Darwin, Katherine, Kakadu National Park and places along the way.A sensational holiday including abundant wildlife, outstanding scenery, swimming in freshwater below waterfalls etc etc. The NT has 2 seasons , The Wet (monsoon season) and the Dry. The Dry season is holiday time.
We also enjoyed 5 nights in Broome, Western Australia.
Since taking early retirement in 2002 we have made 3 trips to Europe, the most recent being for 9 weeks from August 2010. Commencing in Germany then onto the Baltic capitals into Russia with time spent in St Petersburg and Moscow. We visited the former Soviet Union cities of Vitebsk, Vilnius and Warsaw.
This recent trip included 7 days in Paris and 6 days in fabulous Switzerland before visiting Turkey for 20 days, a most interesting country. We finished off with a cruise from Istanbul with included visits to Jerusalem, Mykonos, Cairo and the Giant Pyramids, Crete and Athens.
A 3 night stopover in Dubai completed our journey.
After being home for 3 months we set off overseas to Thailand in February 2006 with a group of "Orchid Fanatics" from Perth , web site Iinet.Net on a 17 day holiday to Bangkok and Chaing Mai. February is a great time to travel to Thailand, the weather is beautiful, No Humidity and it is the dry season. We had a great time riding elephants, rafting, Chiang Mai Flower Festival, River Kwai, river cruises, Thai food, markets and shopping.
