Ted’s Tassie Trip

Wineglass Bay, Tasmania

Wineglass Bay – Happy and healthy again (Kelly and Ted)

The three of us get to Tullarmarine Airport with plenty of time to spare – all good so far. Join the endless check-in queue and master the machine that disgorges our boarding passes. Join the next queue (which is as long as a bad movie) and check in our luggage. Still time to spare so we have a cuppa and a snack.

“We relaxed immediately at Port Douglas”

Ramada Port Douglas

Ramada Port Douglas

I wanted to take my 87 yo mother for a holiday with my sister as we had done in previous years.  Finding a location that was not too taxing travel-wise and where there were attractions to cater for all abilities was the challenge.  I had gifted a stay at Port Douglas to some friends as a wedding present and they returned with glowing reports on Ramada Port Douglas (during renovation period!) so I was keen to see for myself now the renos were complete.

The open foyer (plus free roaming cockatoo) and tropical garden courtyard were refreshing and very welcoming.  We felt comfortable and relaxed immediately. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (as always) with planning our activities for the week.  After settling into our very spacious 2 bedroom unit we visited the onsite restaurant, Tree Bar & Grill, for some “Sundowners” by the pool (there is a different cocktail special everyday and we tried them all) while we went through our brochures.  We dined at the restaurant on a number of occasions and could not have done better anywhere else.

Our 21st Wedding Anniversary Trip to Rotorua, NZ

Rotorua railcruising | WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham

Rotorua’s newest attraction – railcruising!

Time is one of those funny things that creep up on you. Before you know it, the first of your children have moved away from home and your youngest is about to begin their final year of high school. So to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary, my wife and I after 9 years of WorldMark Ownership took the family on our first trip overseas, spending 12 nights in amazing Rotorua, New Zealand. Holidays have changed a lot from the days where a bucket and spade would keep our two children occupied for an entire day at the beach. Thankfully the friendly staff at WorldMark Resort Rotorua lined us up with activities that would entertain our two teenagers while still giving Mum and Dad some time to relax and unwind.

Christmas in Las Vegas, USA!

Las Vegas

Barbara & Trevor in Las Vegas, USA

My husband and I decided to take advantage of the fact that Christmas was mid-week in 2013 and take a week off from our business.

As we hadn’t had a real break since we went to Ramada Port Douglas for a week in July 2012, we were VERY ready to get away, but most WorldMark resorts we considered were already fully booked for Christmas.  So we started looking further afield, and finally settled on Las Vegas – a place we have never really had any great desire to visit, but WorldMark Las Vegas – Boulevard was available and L.V is close to the Grand Canyon, so we thought, ‘Why not?’.

Our Wedding Anniversary in Fiji – 22 November 2013

040Hard to believe it was exactly 13 years ago that we set foot on Fijian soil as brand new Wyndham Owners, staying at WorldMark Resort Denarau Island.  We decided to elope and have our wedding ceremony on the beach, next to the pool at the resort – just Ray and I, oh and a fantastic English couple, Rob and Ann that we met at the bar earlier in the week.
