Where’s your first stop?
Where are you going?
3 months Asia, 3 months Oz & NZ, 3 months South America
How do you pack for 9 months?
What made you decide to do this?
If we don’t do it now, we never will
Where are you for Christmas?
Just north of Brisbane, on the Sunshine Coast. A small low key place called Marcoola.
Where are you for New Year’s Eve?
Sydney. Where else??!
Are you worried about spending so much time together?
No, but fully aware we’ll need some separate time too. Especially Ant
Are you going to work whilst you're away?
Nope, we’re too old to work on our visitor visas – something about 18-30. Pah!
Are you seeing Charlotte?
Yes, if the crazy Aussie lady will reply to any of our messages.... maybe she’s running feral in the Outback… hoo roo!
What are you doing with your home?
Flat tenancy has been given up. So we're returning to the UK jobless AND homeless. Thank goodness for the Jinzi who are putting us up on our return.
Where are you most looking forward to?
Annie – Touring NZ in a campervan, Galapagos Islands, seeing one of my dearest friends Burtie in Australia, the salt flats of Bolivia and staying on one of the islands in Lake Titicaca (the night sky there is meant to be incredible – seeing this with Cookie will be a lasting memory I’m sure).
Ant – New Zealand, learning to scuba dive in Thailand and Peru.
What will you miss the most?
Annie – Easy. Dinner Club. Sob! A cup of tea (how very British), not having a ‘home or base’, a great British pub. Of course, it’s a given all of our friends & family... natters with my cousin Jill. So happy and excited that Jinzi are coming out to see us in April somewhere near Quito, Quito, Quito!
Ant - Tea, toast, friends.
Biggest fear or worry?
Annie – Bugs. Lordy, this is going to be a challenge. Hate big flying ones, not to mention spiders the size of your face.
Ant - Money, killer animals, people.
