One thought on “Photographs of the journey so far…”

  1. Fantastic pics. Please tell me you’re bringing Orinoco back for me! We must have almost bumped into each other on Monday (10th) as our flight home from NZ stopped in Brisbane but only for a couple of hours. Have a fast time in Oz and say hi to Alison for me. See you soon. Lots of love Janet xx
