Planes, trains and automobiles…

Things are certainly hotting up in the O’Connor camp.  All of our travel documents have arrived and we have an appointment with the Travel Agent to collect them all. Finally it is starting to become a reality.

With the itinerary, the flights and the accommodation all confirmed, we started to feel a little more relaxed.  That was until we realised that one has to physically get from one city to the next. Just a small detail that we have overlooked.

Plane travel between European cities, whilst expeditious, is rather costly. 

Automobiles? Well, being that we are in the homeland of some of the most prestigious carmakers in the world this should be a definite consideration… BUT… small detail, they drive on the other side of the road.  I’m sorry but I just can’t get my head around going around a roundabout the other way!

You spot the difference...

That leaves us with Trainsmore to follow

We probably could have considered boating as well, but I wasn’t sure whether that was an option for us landlubbers, though I do believe Captain O’Connor once sailed around the Whitsundays, pre-wife and baby!
