In a few hours, I shall be groping my way downstairs in the dark and heading for the airport. There I will board a plane for Brisbane to make the connection for my flight to….VANUATU.
Go here to see some of the things I’m looking forward to.
Behave yourselves while I’m away! Alternatively,kick up your heels and have fun.I shall!
