It was wonderful to meet Woody & Troy on their very short trip to Melbourne and
Willi and I are so pleased they enjoyed it enough to want to come back - it does make a difference to meet up with friends who are local and can give you experiences you would not otherwise have. Sandra, I do hope you will be able to meet up with them in Sydney - as Woody said making 'solid friends' all around the world is another great thing about this site.

So guys, enjoy the rest of your trip including the Morton Bay bugs in Sydney.

biggrin.gif Thanks Karen for giving them some wonderful hospitality, tell me - did you give them the vegemite test? Did you get them to wear thongs (Aussie footwear type) and chesty bonds singlets so they didn't stand out as tourists? cool.gif

[SIZE=7]Karen, great to hear that you all met up and enjoyed the time
Down Under!

As for Vegemite, our local Supermarket stocks it now, but I haven't tasted it
as yet. We did get Woody to try Marmite at one of our Conventions
in the U.K. but he hated it! Margaret and Charlotte were present at the time!
Charlotte where are you..........???????

Over to you Sandra. Your turn now!

Here are some pictures that Sandra emailed to us to post. Wish we could have seen these two beauties in person. The one with the opera house and bridge is amazing. smile.gif

Just like I remember, only the Opera House is much more impressive in person.
Vegemite -that's punishment!
