My MOTH (Man Of The House) and I began planning for this long awaited trip months in advance. We left Melbourne on June 17th and returned home on August 12th. We had a blast, visiting good friends in Washington State, British Columbia and Louisiana.
We visited ANGEL and Jackie in Washington State, then traveled on a Greyhound bus to BC to spend 8 days with Eric and Prudence, my friends of over 30 years, dating back to the good old days in Singapore. After that we hopped on another Greyhound bus to get back to Seattle to meet up with Nell and her family, who were vacationing in Seattle (from Louisiana) while we were in BC. I know Nell and her family from when we were all living in Singapore some 30 years ago but somehow had lost contact with them. Through the magic of the Internet, I managed to track them down a few months before this planned holiday.
I’m like the Asian ‘Flu actually, just when you think you’re rid of me, I’ll resurface and bug ya!
This Asian ‘Flu then returned to Washington State for another “bout” that lasted a further 20 days! Our holiday finished off with a day in San Francisco before hopping on a plane back to Melbourne, Australia. What follows is an account of our holidays. I do hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing about it.
