    Tour De France

    Ok I'm not a sports person so please bear with me, but I'm currently watching some of the Tour De France with Rob and he told me they do 200km + a day, now what on earth do they do if they need the loo, it's not as though they can stop at the side of the road with all the spectators there:shocked:

    First tour of duty!!

    Just recently back from our first trip back to the UK after moving to Aus!! BIL was getting married, so we made the effort and went over and caught up with all our mates and rellies as well as putting in an appearance at the wedding. It was a quickie – only 2 weeks in the UK, with 4 nights in Singapore on the way back.:goofy: Unfortunately, OH family and mine don’t live near each other, and our mates are even further afield so it meant a lot of travelling whilst in the UK as well. Add to that the fact that I came down with a good dose of tonsillitis at the end of week 1 and you will understand that we did not get off to a good start.:yes: On the plus side, there was an emergency doctor open over the weekend where my Mom lives, who saw me within 10 minutes of walking through the door. Minimal forms to complete, very quick and easy!! Had to go back again on the Monday – seen within 5 minutes of walking in – no appointment either time!! Very impressed.:wubclub: I must say, I had forgotten how pretty the UK country side is! It really was very green and looked lovely. We did not have the greatest weather while we were there – it was pretty chilly and overcast, but I think it only rained once in the whole 2 weeks. Apart from being good to see everyone, I think the trip was good for us as it reminded us a few things which we thought that we missed…. And maybe we don’t really miss some of them?? There were the silly things. The corner yoghurts with the crunchy bits – in my mind I remembered them to be much tastier!! Wotsits, Quavers, ginger nut biscuits – all sorts of little things that I thought that I missed and they turned out to be a disappointment when I got them! Then there were the not so silly things – friends who didn’t make the effort to meet up with us even though we had given them plenty of notice. We arranged a pub night and told our friends about it well in advance. Loads of people did come and it was great to see them, but there were a few people who didn’t, even though they said they would. Don’t get me wrong – it was great seeing everyone who came, but of all the people who did make the effort, those that didn’t were the ones that we thought we were closer to?? (2 weeks later and still haven’t heard from them either) Grandparents have gotten older, friends’ children have grown! But otherwise people seem to be getting on fine without us!! In fact a lot of them are doing the same things they were doing when we were there. (Not that I am knocking it!) It did feel like we were telling the same stories 500 times, but that was understandable because every one we saw asked similar questions. I remember when we arrived in Aus, we were blown away by how friendly people were. I distinctly remember our first shopping trip to Coles, and how friendly the cashier was. I think because of that, maybe I started to remember only the bad instances in the UK? Like everyone was rude and unfriendly all the time, and all Aussies were warm and welcoming ALL the time. While we were in the UK we ate out at loads of pubs and, apart from one waiter, everyone was great! Friendly, helpful, reasonably priced. It was good to be reminded of this. I certainly found that drivers are more courteous in the UK, and I found groceries in general to be cheaper than in Aus – but then to be fair, when we moved here I got $2.20 to £1, now we only paid $1.60 for £1. The specials in the supermarkets did seem really good value – I saw pork joints for £2.50 /kg Small things and really arbitrary examples of things, but heyho!! I guess this trip reinforced to us that the UK was not a bad place to live – and that the move to Aus, for us, has been a good thing, even though we still miss things about the UK.

  9. After attending a couple of the excellent drinks nights that Kathryn organises, I felt inspired to try to run an event myself. So, I am looking to get together a group of the Melbourne based Poms In Oz for a Vineyard tour. The tour takes a full day and you get to visit four or five vineyards plus lunch is included. You are driven around in a minibus, which removes any need to worry about driving after sampling a few different vintages. There are a couple of companies that run the tours, links are below: http://www.austwinetourco.com.au/private_yarra_valley_winery_tours.htm Yarra Valley Winery Tours - Daily Social Group Wine Tours Victoria Yarra Valley vineyards wines tastings Melbourne Australia The price is somewhat dependent on how many people go on the tour. For a group of ten, picked up from central Melbourne, the price is around one hundred and thirty five dollars per head. The potential date I am looking at is the Saturday the 27th of November. Let me know via a PM if you are interested so that I can work out a rough idea of numbers. Cheers Jon

    East Coast Tour

    Hi, I'm emigrating to OZ in September. We're arriving in Cairns and are then planning to take a campervan down the East Coast to Sydney. Just wondering if anyone knows what the campsites are like. We would prefer not to book as it would stucture our holiday, like the idea of deciding things on a whim. Anyone know whether the campsites tend to get fully booked this time of year or would we be OK. Our only worry in all this is that we have a 2 year old with us on our travels. Would be grateful if anyone could share their experiences Thanks Claire
