My mother-in-law would love to come to visit us all in Adelaide, but is completely daunted by the journey itself. She's a fit 76 year old, recently widowed after 50 years of marriage, and has never done any travelling on her own. She is particularly nervous about having to transit somewhere like Dubai or Singapore, and we think she'd find it all so stressful.
We don't want the trip to be an ordeal for her. And we also don't want her to be so freaked out by the journey that she never comes again.
Her preferred option would be that one of us returns to the UK to collect her, but we simply can't afford to do that.
Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome.
