April 2006 New news at last!


We have now been in the UK for 4 years and 4 months and we have had some really good experiences amongst the bad ones! Living in the UK has allowed us to travel and see places that we never even dreamed of seeing. Our most exotic trip was to Dubrovnik in Croatia.


Janet’s brother Paul works at the Hilton Hotel in Dubrovnik. He hosted us in his beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with all the mod cons. We spent most of the 10 days there either wandering around the old walled city or on Paul’s boat (Amanzi) exploring the Islands and the local coastline, swimming and diving. The temperatures averaged about 35c during the day and not much less at night. It was a holiday we will never forget and we managed to rub shoulders with the rich for a short while.


Our next holiday will be to sunny SA in July/August. The flights are already booked and we are looking forward to seeing friends and family again.


We have finally bought property and now own a piece of England. It is not cheap! The deal was signed and sealed this week and we are planning to move on the 1st of July, just in time to unpack and then pack for our holiday in South Africa. It is an exciting time for us.
