After getting you all excited by the promise of a constant stream of interweb based bulletins on our extensive travels, it must seem that we’ve been awful quiet so far… Well, we have been spending a great deal of time on a trifecta of long haul international flights – I think if I am asked ‘chicken or fish’ once more, or told that my nearest exit may be behind me, then I might just scream and deliberately inflate my lifejacket before leaving the aircraft…

I have spared you all news from our very brief visit to Blightly – If the blog had been called NuneatonToNewYork then I would have already informed you about my mum and dad’s new conservatory, the difficulty of finding a decent coffee in the West Midlands, and how much I miss English country pubs (some of which seem to have Thai restaurants based them nowadays, which is very cosmopolitan).

And what have we learnt from all this flying around? Qantas, I am told, get 5/5 for gluten free food, while British Airways get a measly 1/5. BA do win bonus points for having the most helpful check-in dude at Heathrow. And Changi Airport in Singapore really does have it’s own butterfly garden (or butter-waitinginthegateforboarding garden to be exact.)

So we have just arrived in Mexico City. If we survive the jetlag (poor us) we’ll be in touch….

    Well done you two, you’ve made it to the starting point!!! Glad the parents are good Dave but you may just have to wait to get home for a decent coffee; Claire tells me that the only decent places to get coffee in the USA are run by Melbournians!! Beautiful autumn days here, a perfect time of year. I’m going to make more hot cross buns tomorrow and a huge lasagne for the weekend……I think the masses are coming for Sunday/Monday. Really looking forward to more postings. Love, the Martins.
