trip to Greece
I often ask myself why I keep going back to Greece, because

of course we made another tour as independent travellers.

to England on business every 18 months and knew my way around
London better than the locals.Now I have this Greek thing.
But I dearly want to get to the US, Canada, Italy and Europe
(don't want much do I?). And when, at last, I am only capable
of being lifted into a bus, will I tour New Zealand properly,
maybe leaving the best til last
