At home we've been spending some spare time/making time to go to the gym to get those beach bods (ha ha) in time for our September cruise around Croatia on the yacht, as well as a week on the Greek island of Mykonos. In trying to sort our flights out we managed to get a good deal stopping over in Prague, Czek Republic, so we going to have some fun there too.
Off to sea..
Meanwhile planning is full steam ahead for our July flight across the Mozambique Channel from Vilankulos to Madagascar in our Sling aircraft. Here's the logo we've been working on for the tour of about 6-8 aeroplanes joining us.. more pics and info on my aviation blog.. click the link here.
