    Hi Sherry, I keep trying to steer people away from visiting over Christmas and New Year … unless they are visiting family, of course! Shoulder seasons are much more reliable and pleasant for travelling … IMHO. Summer in the Centre can be brutal. It is a dry desert, after all. Why anyone would actually choose to visit there in the worst travel season is beyond me. The prime time to visit the outback is July/August. But you only have a little more than a week to see a couple of icons spread over a large and disparate region. That's hard to do in anyone's language. That's why I usually suggest Autumn or Spring. And as you say, with the co-operation of the weather gods, April can be delightful. Glad you had a great visit. Cheers, Jan

I was eighteen and ready for anything. But nothing had prepared me for my first sight of New England fall foliage aflame with colors, spread before me like an unexpected gift. Yes, I’d grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area and gone to school in the English countryside, so I was lucky enough to have always lived surrounded by natural beauty. ...
