Sadly returning to Australia

It is with a lot of sadness, disappointment, and anger that we have booked fares to return home on 27 March. We are sad for the people whose lives have been changed forever by this awful virus, and disappointed for ourselves that we can no longer continue travelling around this beautiful country. We canít see the travel restrictions being lifted anytime soon, and the thought of only being able to either go to the shops, or a 30 minute walk for several weeks is difficult, not only for us, but for others as well.

The anger is purely reserved for insurance companies.

Despite being told two weeks ago that as we purchased top cover insurance in July 2019, flew on 25 September 2019 that we are now not covered for anything that is related to this pandemic. That means the new airfares at Ä4,000, the car hire $9.000, and any other cancellations will not be covered. Apparently all things changed when the Government raised the level. This also means that as of the date the level was raised, we havenít had the health coverage. I personally think we are just as much at risk on the flight. Anyway, while our daughter, son in law, and family are disappointed for us, they are happy we are returning.

We are trying to be positive and we have had a fabulous six months, and trying to be positive, however the tears keep coming.
