Norfolk Home Page
Our holiday this year was to Norfolk Island, somewhere that Gai has always wanted to visit - must be the
ancestry side of her to see how and where some of the convicts lived. Her convicts were all shipped to
Australia so no genealogy on this trip although she wants to look at a few graves.
Our flight was from Brisbane International Airport, so we left the house at 5.45AM to go to the car park
to be ready for a 9.45AM departure. We printed off their instructions on how to get there but they were
wrong - as the new roads had been opened up and their web site had not been updated. Luckily I managed to
find the place and then we caught the shuttle to the Terminal.
After a pleasant flight in premium economy we touched down on Norfolk Island. We were met by our host
and followed her back to our cottage that was to become our home for the next 7 days. Very peaceful and
quiet here so a quick trip back to town to get some supplies and decide what we are
going to do over the next few days. Clive found the Island Data Services so arranged for a weeks access
to their wireless Internet - gotta keep in touch you know.
After a big lunch we decided on a light tea of a chicken sandwich for Gai and a chicken and cheese one for me.
