Hello everyone! We are midway through our trip. It has been very nice so far. A week in New Zealand where we started with the Wine Festival in Blenheim and then on to Wellington. New Zealand is a beautiful country. Then to Melbourne for a few days where it is was hot, hot, hot! Melbourne is quite a bustling city, lots to do and we have already said we must go back. While there, we had the wonderful pleasure of meeting one of my solidperfume.com friends. Karen and her husband Willi provided us with a wonderful day of fun and great company. I am so happy we were able to meet them. What a remarkable thing that this website allows you to make wonderful friends all over the world.

We are currently in Adelaide, where again it is hot! Exploring the city and tomorrow we are off again for another wine tour. We missed the big snow in Chicago! And that's totally OK laugh.gif

Two more stops before we go home. Will report more later!

Woody

So glad to read your report Woody. Its wonderful you got to meet Karen and Willy, our solid perfume friends. Enjoy being in hot weather as chances are when you get back home to Chicago, it will not be summer. sad.gif Thanks again.

Woody:
So good to know you are safe and enjoying your trip. One of my trip highlights in Adelaide was Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary. If you get a chance to go there, you should enjoy it. I went in the evening when all the night critters were out and about.

Great to receive the news and that you have met Karen and husband.

Will you be catching up with Sandra?

Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of your stay and soak up the good weather.
Am sure you will be in for another type of soaking once back in Chicago!
