Meeting grandma, mum and rellies in Europe

Grandma usually manages to sneak quietly into Europe, whizz around doing some sightseeing and escape without bumping into me, under the pretext of tight schedules and not being in the UK. You'd almost think she doesn't want to see me, except when I'm in Australia I usually get a sound telling off if I've been in the country for a day or two before I call her. Ah thus is the justice of my grandma, it's a good thing she's not a judge.

This time she's with uncle Ron (my cousin Bonnie's grandpa) who I'd like to meet as well, so Bonnie and I are going to sneak up on them. Tsering might join us as well.

Then, around mid-week, I'll fly to Berlin and catch my mum Elizabeth and my stepfather Bill, who are cruising around checking out Vienna and Berlin.

Back in time for the weekend, since there might be a party in London ;o) All of this right in the midst of finding my new pad in Islington area!
