blog April – June 2019

Wed April 10. I have landed in London! I certainly made the right decision to fly with Virgin. The flight with Virgin Atlantic from Hong Kong to London was the best I have experienced on any airline. The Bus Class cabin, the friendly crew, the wonderful food…….all made for a wonderful flight. I got 5 […]

DAILY BLOG – in descending order

Sun Aug 6 I landed safely in Melb last Thurs – but was taken aback by the weather. 3c when we landed………Melb’s coldest Aug day for 50 years, they said! Since then I have been organising my life back in St K & trying to adjust to jet-lag. This means my usual daily 1 hour walk – […]

Blog- June – July 2017
