Welcome to our travel website. We are John and Lilly and we get about (JLgetabout) whenever we can. Based in Sydney we are now semi-retired with most of one semi ear-marked for travel. We generally document our everyday experience in diary form. Our photos are added mainly because it is easier for us to review and reminisce. We hope you too enjoy our adventures.
Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Egypt and possibly Turkey
Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
