hello to the travelling world. My name is Alison, I live in suburban Adelaide, the capital of S.A. I am in my early 50's, work as an operating theatre nurse and am looking forward to my first foray into overseas travel for some 20-odd years. Am heading to the west coast of Canada,cruising Inside Passage Alaska, and having a warm-up stop in Honolulu on the way home, all this to take place in September. I have enjoyed reading the forums on this site for a few months now, and thought I'd like to join in and share my thoughts.If I can be of any help to any-one wishing to visit S.A.,please don't hesitate to ask, if I don't know, I'll make it up!!! No, not really, I will find out for you. Extending the hand of friendship to you all.
