Welcome all to another Grey Nomads Travel and Cruise newsletter.

This week we are happy to share with you some information about Viking Cruises. Having provided some of the world's finest cruises on the rivers and canals around Europe for a number of years, they have recently brought their very special recipe to the oceans with great success; so much so that we are using Viking on our Group Tour to Norway and into the Midnight Sun in June 2020... Come join us! More about that below. 

Catching Up With An Old Friend

This last week, we met up with Sharon for lunch at the Carriage Cafe in Seville; she wishes to be remembered to you all. Her son is planning for his wedding which meant there were lots to catch up on. Sharon used to care for the shop when we were accompanying travelers on our group tours.

The Early Bird Catches The Worm!

I have been very busy this week finalizing documents for clients going on a cruise out of Japan, a trip for six to Holland to visit relatives, a family to Calgary and on to New York, a couple to Egypt and Jordan, and a group of hunters to New Zealand. All these trips were planned successfully as they all had a common theme - booking early. It's a safe way of ensuring your upcoming holidays happen. With so many holidaymakers choosing to travel overseas now, it is best to give me a call and start the ball rolling now. It would be a catastrophe to miss out.
Last weekend, we visited the Werribee Estate and the Victorian Rose Gardens there. If you ever get the chance, take a picnic lunch and enjoy this magnificent area. Well worth the time and sooooo relaxing. They are just off the freeway west of Melbourne down towards Geelong. Both of us are keen photographers and it looks like a relative is keen to get photos of us too.
Have a great week and I look forward to helping you soon. Lyn.
