It’s all coming together now

Now our motorhome is in existence at the dealers yard we can start to make plans for the next 12 months. This involves setting up the motorhome, 5 or 6 months more touring and then shipping it back to NZ. Our NZ agent will then take delivery and make sure that it’s NZ compliant so that when we collect it we can head off into the wide blue yonder.

Another problem to sort out is how we get back to NZ. It wasn’t that long ago that tickets available on the Frequent Flyers points system were virtually booked out 12 months in advance. Now all of a sudden there appears to plenty of tickets available. The airline concerned is Qantas so we are wondering if because of all of their engine problems recently they are getting lots of cancellations or people are staying away in their droves. Who knows but it could be our saving grace as we have sufficient air points which otherwise could go to waste.

Australian dollar is strong. Many Aussies are taking advantage of that to plan their holiday overseas.

I'd grab the seats whilst they are available.
