    Tokyo here we go by Pam O’Connell

    For the second year running I didn’t get a place in the Tokyo ballot so that was that…  A very good friend and her daughter booked with Sports Tours but I didn’t really have the funds. Then Max and Becs also booked their places and the temptation became too much – Sports Tours had one […]
