Sunday, 13-Jan-13: Depart Perth:
This was the last of our trips to UK in which we based ourselves at the Nook cottage in Bourton-on-the-Water. We travelled there on 14-Jan-13, with our first "venture" being a conference (+ some sightseeing) in Vienna 11-Feb to 14-Feb-13. Our next excursion was to Portofino (14-Mar) followed by a cruise on the MSC Divina from Genoa to Venice (15 to 23-Mar). We then spent several days with the Brooks in Venice (23 to 26-Mar). On returning to the UK, we completed our clearing-out of the Nook and flew back to Perth on 31-Mar-13.

Monday, 14-Jan-13: Snow:
We were greeted on arriving at The Nook with a significant (not huge, but pretty) snowfall (about 2cm).
