After 5 more sleeps we fly out of Sydney with our 3 kids for Santiago, Chile.
Hey I found this photo on the puter. It's an old one (photo and computer). Kids are now - Debbie 30, Peta 28 and Jeremy 27 (left to right).
6 weeks in Sth Am and then we arrive Miami, FL. Debbie will have headed back to Aust from Lima (she has a job and a husband to return to) and the other 2 will leave us when we reach Miami. They get back to Aust in late May. We take another 5 months to reach home.
We will be staying with Servas people and using Auto Driveaway company to get around. Had thought about buying a car and then selling when we depart... but... bought a tandem bike instead! We pick that up in Miami.
Been watching the Australian Open Tennis Championships on TV this month. Federer (Swiss) meets Baghdatis (Cypress), that's if Federer beats Kiefer (Germ). And the ladies - Henin-Hardene (Belgian) to play Mauresmo (FR) who's never won a grand slam event. We were sorry that Martina Hingis got knocked out. She is a favourite here in Aust.
We have 1 more sleep here in Dubbo before driving to Sydney for last few days. Boy, has there been some sorting and cleaning and chucking out when you're away for 10 months and you're letting Brad and Marli (get married tomorrow) live in your house! I could write a blog just about that... but you wouldn't be too excited.
I'm hoping to write 1 last blog from Sydney before departure. I think I'm excited! Just hope I can clean office, coffee table and outside table while Fay's away doing some last min shopping.
