Travel Plans

Why is this well loved song even more important to me at the moment?

Because next Friday, for nearly two weeks, I leave the desert for Perth. There I will meet up with Buff and on Sunday (Valentine’s Day) we board a heavier than air flying machine to travel to our nation’s capital, Canberra.

There, on the Monday and Tuesday we will be walking around the Australian National Gallery where we will be able to study many of the originals of the images above.

Along with over 140 other original works by legendary French Impressionists.

I promise to attempt to avoid boring you all with my visit to some very old Gallic gentlemen.
