Celebrating Rhys
Messenger Adarraga's Birthday

Rhys celebrated his birthday last Sunday with a big party for his friends.

Trip to Australia. 2007

This year, Ignacio, Esperanza and their son Alex and grandpa Antonio decided to visit us. They travelled with the THAI air company and  arrived in Sydney in March. Aafter a couple of days they flew to Townsville, our city, where they established their base. From here we travelled to various beautiful points further north.

North QLD with its tropical forests, its sugar cane and mangoes fields, the islands and the beaches with fine sand and an ideal climate, is a paradise. The Japanese, who own several businesses in the area, appreciate it the most.

On their return trip they flew to Brisbane where they spent several days with Austin's family and nephew Christopher, visiting amongst other spots, the internationaly popular Gold Coast. They returned to Madrid from Brisbane again with with Thai Airlines.

This is the second trip for Ignatius and his family. He has a soft spot for Townsville. Of the 5 brothers and sisters, he is the only one born here.

We visited:

·    Sydney

·    Townsville

·    Billabong

·    Green Island

·    Kuranda

·    Port Douglas

·    Magnetic Island
