Europe (July & August 2016)
Singapore (3 July - 9 July) We left Adelaide on Sunday 3 July for 5 days in Singapore before flying on to London. Whilst in Singapore we did the usual tourist attractions as we did when we previously holidayed in Singapore. On July 7 we did a same day excursion to Kuala Lumpur and visited the Petronias Towers. Our flight to London was eventful as our booked flight had been overbooked and we were scheduled to depart on a later flight. This would then have resulted in missing our connecting flight to Dublin. As we had arrived early at ...

Dublin (10 July 2016)
Depart Dublin Departing Dublin's fair city and it was onwards to the North of Ireland. A wonderful tour lied ahead, with a short 2 hour drive to Belfast on the brand new 'Peace Highway'. The drive up was broken up by an interesting and lovely little stop at Monasterboice! Monasterboice After stories en route we were taken off the highway and down the much less beaten path to visit the haunting ruins of Monasterboice. We saw a real 10th century round tower and learn how Irish ancestors took refuge from the Vikings. We were also able to touch the most ...

Holland (January 2015)
We drove from Antwerp to Amsterdam and stayed three nights in Amsterdam. Amsterdam (3 nights) Our arrival in Amsterdam was delayed somewhat trying to navigate Rotterdam as our GPS maps weren't up to date with the roadworks which made following the directions given by the GPS almost impossible. By now we were just about holidayed out. Our Holiday Inn was close to Schiphol Airport and the weather was inclement so we didn't venture into the heart of Amsterdam. Each morning we waited for the weather to clear, which it didn't, so we caught a taxi to the local shops. The ...
