The countdown is on!
I picked up the travel documents from my travel agent today, so it feels like it is getting very close now. After our visitors leave this week, I shall put my suitcase on the spare bed and start to throw items of clothing into it, as I think about what to take to London. it will be a very different experience this time, as I am used to packing for the English Summer and now I have to think instead about what to pack for the Winter, and we are in the middle of our Summer. I hope my brain can cope with this!

Family Tree Research Trip to Canberra with special guest Tour Guide!
Customised Heritage Tours will be heading to Canberra in late March for a family history research tour, with extra-special guest and Tour Guide, TV researcher Megan Gibson from Family Tree Time.

Imagine how much harder that decision and ultimately the journey would have been in 1873 or even earlier.
