The weather here in Sydney has been somewhat mixed over the last few days. We are headed into Autumnal weather down in the southern hemisphere. The temperatures are however warm, when one compares here with that of say  somewhere like…….oh! I don’t know…… say Ramsbottom in Lancashire for instance.:)

Bondi..attracts "the beautiful people". They wear sunglasses....EVEN WHEN IT ISN'T RAINING...How cool is that!

Come the 21st of April will be flying out to the Cook islands (with a short stopover in Aukland). I believe the Cook islands to be independent, though they are administered by New Zealand in free association. Named after the eponymous Captain James Cook, these islands languish in the southern Pacific sun. A group of 15 islands covering some 92.7 square miles of the southern Pacific ocean, they exist in idyllic indolence. The capital is Avarua hosting 10572 people (2011) on the main island of Rarotonga.

A plan has now been hatched, to “bunny hop” across the Southern Pacific Ocean from Rarotonga to Tahiti and on to Bora Bora in French Polynesia. Subsequently to Easter Island, making landfall in Santiago South America about the end of May.
