Hello from Windsor UK.

We stayed with Bec & Greg last night in their beautiful home in Windsor, wonderful to catch up with them, and Bec made us a lovelly dinner, thanks and much love to you both. I’m currently using Bec’s little MacBook. We’ve had an exciting morning already with Greg taking us for a quick spin in his Porsche 911 Carrera 4, phwoaaar! We pushed him into it Bec he wasn’t showing off. We’re off to have a look around Windsor, Windsor Castle and Eton shortly.

We’ve got a hire car whilst we’re in the UK this week, the last week of our holiday. Hertz gave us a very sexy black Audi A4, as Borat would say… Very Niiiice! We travelled from Southsea Portsmouth via Bath to Windsor yesterday. It’s so green and lush over here, we’ve driven through some beautiful scenery, and lovelly old towns, unfortuntaley there’s never anywhere to pull over to take photos. We didn’t spend long in Bath, we have both been there before. It’s a beautiful place. We had high tea in the Pump Room, so Joanne was very happy.

We actually arrived in the UK on Monday, flying from Berlin. We spent a couple of days catching up with Joanne’s second cousins in Southsea Portsmouth, which was wonderful, very friendly welcoming people. We loved the cooked full English breakfasts. We had a look around the new Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays shopping area, and visited the top of the new Spinnaker Tower. I had a look around the historic dockyard, and saw the old HMS Victory, HMS Warrior, and Mary Rose. These dockyards are where all the convicts bound for Australia left from, part of our heritage.

This evening we’re off to Greenwich to stay with Sandra & Mal, and we’ll have a few days in London to see some sights. Marshall’s brother Stu works at Phonica Records now, so we’ll be popping in to say hello. It will be fantastic to meet up with all our ex-Aussie mates living in London. More clubbing? Yes! We’re off to Fabric on Saturday night, to see British Murder Boys and Ricardo Villalobos. We’re not looking forward to flying home for 20+ hours direct from clubbing… We’ll be back in Sydney on Monday. This has been an awesome holiday. Have spent way too much $, as you do…

Much love D & J
