I too, am a retired SWF, living in South Florida. I'd like to do the Australian thing, but I would like to spend some time there before or after. There is so much to see there, and once you've travelled all that way, why not?
I would also like to do the 28 day Los Angeles circle tour of the South Pacific & Hawaii, on October 20, 2012 aboard the Princess Sapphire for $3495. Interested?
