A comfortable way to travel to Melbourne again 2016

Sheila travel blog
Welcome to my trip journal again!
Katie and Andy are back in Melbourne so we have decided to visit them again early next year particularly as we found a bargain 37 day cruise on the Queen Elizabeth going from Southampton to Adelaide starting on January 10th 2016. This is one way of avoiding jetlag!
We hope to be able to keep in touch using this journal and the itinerary is shown on the map but as there are a lot of sea days contact may be a little spasmodic.
Once in Australia we are hiring a car and spending 3 weeks traveling from Adelaide to Melbourne along The Princess Highway and The Great Ocean Road. Katie and Andy are joining us for two of the three weekends we are on the road.
We will then stop with Katie and Andy and will fly back around Easter time...hopefully the weather will have improved by then.
We will be looking forward to seeing you all again by then!
Sheila and Terry
