Bye-Bye Australia - Welcome Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, and finally Qatar.
Here we are now van less, and staying in a lovely little hotel/motel just beside Melbourne airport enjoying 2 luxury nights in a bed, not sleeping head to toe any more and in a room, taking advantage of all that is on offer regarding the gym, swimming pool and sauna a lovely little restaurant with a well deserved bottle of wine, toasting one another on our lifetime adventure, speaking of all the ' ups and downs' as all you lovely blog readers have read on the previous installments of the blog.
Now we are beginning to feel a little jet lagged 17 hours going from country to country in one hit, and not knowing one hour or even one day from the next because of all the changing times from one country to another, but finally we reached our destination ( as Doris would have said on the sat nav ) and as soon as we touched down into Qatar, 2 friendly smiling faces were waiting for us, thank-you Chris and little Freddie-Ray, what a welcome, then once we arrived Katie and Sue (Katie's) mum had prepared a lovely Easter roast dinner for us, which went down a treat, thank you so much for that it was lovely.
Our forthcoming weeks will be very enjoyable, not sure what the plans are yet, we were going to book Kathmandu, and visit base camp in Nepal to trek part of Everest but we think something has to be left on hold for further ventures for us to achieve, and this will give us another goal to aim for, so this will most probably be done sometime later on, we have achieved so much and do not want to spoil ourselves by coming home completely worn out, so it will be a case of watch this space, maybe next year, and then another blog for you lovely readers to follow again, but a much smaller one, sorry if any of you have been bored with our adventures, but we know from your comments that a lot of you have enjoyed reading our ' ups and downs ' around the world..
Life is so short and experiences like these have to be done while you can, to enjoy and explore..
Love to all you lovely blog readers, precious friends and family out there, and thanks for reading.
( ps you never know plans could still be made for Kathmando life is just a mystery ) so keep looking out for updates, you never know.!!!!
