Round World
On these pages, you will find my rambling notes and thoughts from almost two hundred thousand miles of flights taken from the start of 1985 through to 1997.
It's taken me a while to get this site the way I like it, with flags of all the places I have visited to brighten up the site. At last, we have a few maps showing where I have been.
Of course, there's still plenty of room for improvement, and I will be adding more links, maps and photographs in the future.
If you are looking for a multimedia extravaganza here, you will be disappointed. You won't find any automatic midi files churning out songs you've never heard before and you won't be baffled by frames everywhere you turn. If you want to know where you will go when you click on a link, you can find out without being frustrated by JavaScript telling you it's an active link. However, if you want to know of some of the joys and sorrows of world travel, the excitement and the boredom, then this is the place for you.
Enjoy your visit and come back soon!
Scattered through the pages and the text, you'll find old pictures of the whole family.
Don't miss Matthew's description of Melbourne. Matthew is much older and wiser by now, of course. I have finished writing about our trip back to England at the end of 1995 and back to Vanuatu in 1996.
However, I still haven't written about the huge number of flights I took in 1998 and 1999. Mostly they were between Napier and Auckland and Wellington, though there were some slightly further afield.

Please visit "The Bookshelf", my wife's site of reviews of children's books.

Places I almost visited.

After changes, things are more or less the same.

On our trip to Melbourne, our son Matthew wrote a diary of what we did each day. I have reproduced it here.
