Well, we have a long plane trip coming up going to San Francisco.
We first have to travel to Sydney (Australia) and then after a layover, head off to the States. According to the trip plans, it is 2 hours to Sydney, 3 more hours on the ground there, and then 13.5 hours up to the California. Add some time in the airport at each end and in total we will be commuting for around 21 hours.
With all of that time to kill, I am going to need some serious tech to get me through.

Even though San Francisco is just a small part of the trip and with cities not being the focus, we are still keen to see quite a few things. It has been a lot of years since either of us have been there and we certainly want to discover some new things together.
We have not nailed down what we are going to see or in what order. There are a few items on the list which are ‘must sees’ but the rest we will sneek in as/when we can.

We are so happy to now be looking after a new dog which is undergoing Guide Dog training.
The new pup is named ‘Harley’ and expected to be with us for the next 5-6 months as he undergoes daily training. He has settled into his new temporary home quite well. He is constantly making us smile.
Harley is a affectionate and gentle pup with a bright future. He will soon be helping out a vision impaired client.
We are headed back to the States during the months of May and June. Apparently, there is a ‘significant’ birthday to celebrate whilst away.
We are starting to get excited – and just a little stressed about things yet to organise & prepare.
The last minute trip plans are coming together. Julie is spending the day looking at the areas of San Francisco that we should be seeing and putting a comprehensive list of notes together.
Over the next few days, I will be adding content to this site with the complete plan.
