To say that the last 3 months have been busy would be an understatement... its been a crazy few months for travelling... but as that is often the case I have become almost blasé about it... something I'm working on changing. I try to plan new things to do in all the cities I visit often to keep the trip exciting. Travelling exhibitions in galleries or cooking classes add something 'new' to any city visit... I mean how many times does one person need to visit Sydney Harbour Bridge?
The end of April saw hubby and myself in NYC. He had quiet a lot of work stuff to do (as is usually the case) and I tagged along taking advantage of the hotel room. During this visit I did some great pilates reformer classes. I also managed to hook up with several friends who were coincidentally in town at the same time from London and Melbourne.
As usual I bought a cheaper flight and travelled via London on British Airways to make my trip 'affordable'.
We returned home to three lots of visitors, a girlfriend from London stayed for a week, followed immediately by a couple from Singapore and literally on the day they left my travel buddy arrived as we were going off on a trip to Amsterdam. We had a great 4 night trip to Amsterdam where we also managed to meet up with some friends who were visiting from Singapore. (I'll add a post about this trip and what we did shortly)
Returning from Amsterdam I had a quick turn around as hubby and I had been invited to a corporate golf event in Inverness. We decided to add a few days on the trip so we could get in a few practice golf games before-hand too.
Almost immediately after we got back to Zurich my husband had to fly off to K.L. for just over a week, again for work. This did give me some nice downtime at home and I was able to get through to the bottom of the laundry pile.
He came home and spent a whole 48 hours in Switzerland before we headed to the airport again to fly to Tokyo. Hubby had to work but I can never decline a trip to Tokyo so again I managed to get a good premium economy fare via London (where I had a nice long weekend with friends) and I headed out to meet him there. We were lucky enough to meet up with a friend who was visiting from Hong Kong so that made the trip a bit special.
When we arrived back from Japan there was a flurry of activity as we were expecting a friend to come and stay and my husband and I travelled with him to Vienna for 4 nights. My husband had to return home to work after Vienna, but I travelled with my friend on to Budapest or another 4 days. (I'll be adding a post about this trip too later)
I had 5 days at home to recharge my batteries (and do the laundry) before heading out to Singapore where I met hubby, (he had already been there for 2 days). We stayed for 4 nights before heading to Melbourne and Sydney. Melbourne I enjoyed a couple of days doing girlie stuff with a friend I used to work with in London and also met some other friends for a few dinners.
Again in both Melbourne and Sydney my husband was working hard, in fact I rarely saw him even for dinner.... BUT the best bit was that I convinced him to add on a break to Etu Moana in The Cook Islands as a short holiday. He has been working and jetting around so much I thought a 5 day break with no internet, T.V. or even cell phones would be just the tonic to help him re-charge his batteries...... and also give us some time together to pencil in our travel plans for 2018...
