Huge savings on Peugeot

Fabulous scenery in a selection of unique tours and destinations which are aimed at travellers looking for travel activity in lesser known and lesser travelled areas of Asia.  For instance, check out the 14-day Sichuan Explorer package which travels through some of China's  most spectacular regions including the Nine Villages Valley.  Or gather together details of tours worth including, simply get in touch with Wendy Wu Tours on  1300 727 998 or visit  This one is priced from $3923 per person twin share from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth. It's a fully inclusive group tour which includes international economy return fares, accommodation with all meals, English speaking guides, sightseeing, transport, visas for Australian passport holders and fuel surcharge and tipping which are subject to change. 

Returning to Qantas

I have not been a traveller on a Qantas ticket for some time.  I don't quite know what has happened to the Aussie airline, except that I reckon things have changed for the better.   

On a Melbourne/Brisbane flight last weekend the crew of the QF flight smiled their way through in-flight service.  From the flight deck both captain and first officer continued with a friendliness which I don't recall from any previous flight over the past couple of years.  Something is going on and it is all for the better ! 

Fiery Fiesta

One of Europe's craziest festivals,  Las Fallas is scheduled March 17 – 20 and a Topdeck package includes three nights multi-share accommodation at a centrally located hostel with daily breakfasts, a walking tour of Valencia, a Las Fallas information book, trip leader and a trip t-shirt.  The centrepiece  is the spectacular La Crema, the parading and burning of a 20-metre high effigies of politicians.  Las Fallas (the fires) is held in honour of St Joseph.  Contact Topdeck on 1300 886 332.
