FANCY A TRIP TO THE ISLE OF WIGHT

Anyone fancy a trip to the Isle of Wight Festival in June 2008?

The Police are the headline act on the last evening, the other two evenings top acts being the Kaiser Chiefs and the Sex Pistols.

Let me know what you decide to do. Like you I think it might be worth it as a step towards Australia but probably not on its own. Do you own a DJ?

Its Brit ex-pats I tend to not see eye to eye with....... but then you can never generalise.

Take care

PS Did you get your DVD's eventually?

Paying for the ticket and the airfare is one thing but it looks like the sort of evening where you would have to spend just as much to buy a decent frock!

Personally, I really enjoyed Tortola! We stayed at the Mongoose Apartments and all we had to do was stroll down a lane to arrive at lovely Cane Garden Bay, which is lined with excellent beach bars! The water is great, the beach quiet, the people wonderful...and the Elm's BBQ night is great! And you...
