Roses Down Under

Join Scott and Cindy as they take a once in a lifetime rose tour of Australia and New Zealand with Michael Marriott and Paul Zimmerman. I plan to add to this post daily so you can travel along and share the sights with us. The Botanica Tour features botanical gardens, private rose gardens, and production nurseries for 18 days. That’s a lot of roses!

We started with the longest flight ever on United. Seventeen plus hours from LAX to Melbourne.
Halfway there and almost all in darkness plus losing a day crossing the International Dateline.

From Melbourne we took a 1.5 hour flight to Adelaide where our tour will begin on Friday 11/4.
