I've just come across a deal which should be of interest to 'we seniors'. Ecruising.travel has just released a special seniors' fare from $979. It's a 12-night cruise on board the Century Celebrity, sailing from Auckland to Sydney. Make a booking prior to August 30 to capitalise on this deal. Sail out of Auckland on December 12 and visit the Bay of Islands, Tauranga, Napier, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and then Melbourne before arriving n Sydney.

A Lion attack
Nothing to do with the Brisbane Lions, but rather a warning to those lucky enough to be able to take a safari tour in Africa. Travel into wildlife parks is more commonplace these days and that, at times, may see a lack of care being shown by visitors. To assist, first up make sure you have adequate insurance. Stay in the vehicle if game watching. Listen to your guide, always! Keep your voice down and never turn your back. Special care needs o be taken if on a walking tour. Regarding the insurance, only travel with a licensed safari guide and ensure you have adequate travel insurance. For more information go visit www.travelinsurancedirect.com.au

What a picture!!
A 15-day Timeless China escorted small group journey opens the door to China, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, a full day tour of the Great Wall, the summer palace. And, the Terracotta warriors ! A real highlight just has to be the giant Panda breeding research base in Chengdu. Then, there's the Jade Buddha Temple, the Tiger Leaping Gorge, and the world's largest Buddha statue. Priced from $4078 per person twin share. In my opinion, worth every cent.
