Our Travels - 2018

2018 - Cyprus

We spent Christmas and New Year in the village of Armagetti, Cyprus making new friends and enjoying the culture of this wonderful island.

Lots of walks, lots of laughs and lots of food and drink.  When Penny and George invited us back to pet-sit again the following year, we accepted immediately.

2018 - Fremantle to Sydney Cruise (Radiance of the Seas)

We said goodbye to Cyprus and headed back to England where we did a pet-sit in Chippenham.

We then headed back to Perth, Western Australia to board Radiance of the Seas for a cruise from Fremantle to Sydney, via New Zealand.

2018 - Australia

We arrived in Sydney on 18 March and met our granddaughter Kiara for the very first time – beautiful.

We then went home to the Sunshine Coast to co-ordinate the pre-Commonwealth Games camp for the Scottish Commonwealth Games Team.

2018 - Sydney to Seattle Cruise (Explorer of the Seas)

Back to Sydney again to spend more time with Daniel, LiLi and Kiara before boarding Explorer of the Seas for a cruise from Sydney to Seattle.

2018 - Netherlands

After arriving in Seattle, we immediately headed to the airport and a flight back to MV Sunshine Coast in Antwerp.  We were keen to find out how she had fared being kept in storage (out of the water but in the open) during our time away.  We were happy to see that all was well.

We had been told the The Netherlands was a boating paradise, so we decided to see for ourselves.

It is a stunning country with wonderful, friendly people.  There are more boats (and bicycles) per head of population in The Netherlands than anywhere else and the infrastructure is amazing.

2018 - Pet-sitting

We put MV Sunshine Coast back into “hibernation” in Antwerp and flew out to England.

We did some pet-sitting in Southampton then flew to Hannover, Germany to look after two dachshunds that only spoke French.

Back to England for pet-sits in Havant, Rowlands Castle, Wheathampton, Harpenden and Chelsea as well as some time in Stratford Upon Avon, before heading back to Cyprus for another three month sit in Armagetti.
