Dave sets off for a holiday of a lifetime

David Carr, an integrator in our services team recently had the holiday of his life time. Travelling around Europe with the tour group Contiki, Dave met some amazing people whilst travelling through 13 different countries.

“On the tour I met some amazing people from all walks of life. My tour was very diverse with people travelling from Australia, America, Canada, South Africa, South Korea, Malaysia, and Zimbabwe,” Dave comments.

He explored some amazing places such as Paris, Prague, French Riviera, Corfu, Florence, Rome, Venice, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Amsterdam, and London.

“My personal favorite being Prague and Corfu”, reflected Dave.
His best memory was soaking up the sun in Corfu on a paddle boat with some good mates and a keg of Heineken….a man after each of our own hearts!!

Graham enjoys a South American Adventure.

With Grahams wife moving to Australia 8 years ago, every few years Graham and Carina take the opportunity to visit her family and friends in Uruguay, allowing their kids to spend time with their cousins and grand parents over there.

On the way over this time the Rutter family the opportunity to visit the Patagonian region of Argentina, hiring a car and driving around for 7 days stopping at various points of interest.

For those of you who have been to South America you would know it’s a great place to visit for great food (especially steak!) and great wine.

On our last day there, before flying to Uruguay, we were lucky enough to enjoy some fresh snow, which Graham’s 2 boys loved playing in, seeing it for the first time.

Towards the end of the holiday Graham flew out to AWFS in Las Vegas, before returning to Uruguay to pick up the family on the way home.
