    We were wondering the same thing. So good to hear he is doing better. Give that girl a hug from me when you get there.

    Sadly I fly home early, tomorrow as Julie’s father passed away yesterday! Sudden but peacefully and with minimal suffering.

    Thanks to those who asked after him and wished Julie well.

    Not the way this was meant to end

    So sorry to hear of the passing of Julie's father. Thoroughly enjoyed the rr and am now looking at some of your destinations for future vacation plans.
