    We need to be in Florida around 18th June. Happy to go a week earlier or so very flexible, just looking for cheapest flights. Could arrive NY or Miami, whatever. Would fly clockwise or anti clockwise, any airline, we are retired so can be very flexible. Happy to travel anywhere on the way, it might be interesting to stop off somewhere. Would come back to Perth WA about 3 weeks later but as I said flexi.
