1. 2. Our Travelling Experiences – With Cas & The Sanman

Day 2 SUNDAY HAWAII: – THE PEARL HARBOUR TOUR

WEATHER – Fine & Sunny:

Well, after a good nights sleep, we slept in so well that we almost missed the early morning pick-up for our tour today.  Initially, I read it as 6.30am but it was actually 7am, so that gave us a bit of breathing space.  

Day 1: Saturday – Sydney – Hawaii USA

WEATHER – Fine & Humid

Well, after arriving at SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL in plenty of time, (7pm) we certainly weren’t going to miss our flight, departing at 10.20pm. Our movements through customs was pretty much as expected – I had the run-around this time, having to go through the stretch machine etc, while Cas had to wait.

Day 12 Monday – Stockholm:

DAY 12 STOCKHOLM
WEATHER – FINE.

Well, at first glimpse looking out from the cabin window, as the sun rose, the water was very blue, with a slight wake from the ship, as it quietly pierced it’s way through the SKARGARDEN, or better known as STOCKHOLM’S ARCHIPELAGO.

OUR RUSSIAN EXPERIENCE:

For us it was OUR VERY FIRST TIME TO RUSSIA, needless to say we did have some apprehensions, as would be expected. Allow us to walk u through what we did to give you (as a first timer) an idea of what u would expect to happen.
