Wishful trip(s) would be Guadalcanal

Really? Well, if you do ever get serious about it, please let me know and I'll help out with planning. You know it would be expensive to get to, but once you're there it would be quite cheap to stay a while. Just had a quick look and there's eco-lodges from about $40 per night. Of course, I assume you would want to be doing diving which might bump up the costs a bit :)

It's one of those 'bucket list' items but hey - it could happen! Diving would be nice, but not essential . (Haven't been in a few years so need a refresher course. Oh look - offered at our local YMCA to which we belong. How convenient. Heehee.) Beach combing is essential as I have 5 rather large cat's eyes my Dad collected there during WWII. I had them placed into jewelry several years ago.

I also have an old rubber-backed ship's map of Peleliu, which Dad took with him when the war was over and they returned to port. It's still in rather good shape after all these years. All of his stories and those lovely cat's eyes have definitely fueled the fires to make the trip.

Peter, you'll be first on my contact list when we have collected enough pennies! ;)

Thats the beauty of travel for me, no matter how much you have done, or your preferred style, reading other people's stories or aspirations only inspires and fuels my desire to do and see more.

NZ is already on the planning list. As for my wish list, I'd love to do Austria. Hike the alps and caves. :)

Well... Having my year set fairly well already...

Leaving for a 3 weeks family trip to Australia on the 22nd... Summer is 3 weeks in Timor-Leste on my own - probably with a week at Bali, just because I have to land there anyway... New winter is hopefully Somaliland...

It's going to be awesome!

Cheers,
Ask
