I was thrilled to be offered a flying visit to Australia, hosted by Qantas Holidays, stopping at Los Angeles and Fiji on the way.

Los Angeles was our first stopover city. For the tourist there is plenty to see and do–from the glamour of Beverley Hills to the beaches of Malibu, and the colourful area of China Town and Little Tokyo.
Our next stop was Fiji and what a wonderful place. We arrived as the sun was coming up on this truly magical island. Fiji has an inviting tropical climate, lush vegetation
and white sandy beaches. Whilst there we took a day cruise to Tivua Island where we enjoyed a specially prepared barbecue, swam in the crystal-clear waters and relaxed on the deserted beaches. It was hard to leave this magical place as I fell in love with the Island and the friendly people and their culture.

But it was time to say goodbye as we headed off to our final destination–Sydney–only four hours away. My first view of the Opera House really took my breath away. Sitting by the Sydney Harbour Bridge, having lunched on fresh lobster at one of the many harbourside b

istros, I had to pinch myself to make sure I was really there. Sydney is full of life and boasts fabulous shopping, has wonderful wines and take in the breathtaking views along the way.

To complete this wonderful adventure, I was to fly home Club Class with British Airways. If you can, treat yourself to this excellent service with its excellent cuisine, comfortable seating and attentive staff. What a wonderful way to fly…!
