Response: Hi KY! I'll sort the pictures out as soon as I've finished writing the blog! It's taking far longer than I wanted but keep your eyes out because I am still making progress!! Oh and THANK YOU loads for coming out to meet all my mates in Hong Kong - it turned out to be a pretty good night!
Response: An interesting thing to put on my public blog... ;o) I'll go with the flow but I don't know of any Scottish in me so it'd have to be a Polish kilt (if such a thing exists) or an Irish one... or a skirt, I suppose. Like Andrew, though, I ain't going commando in someone else's fatigues...
Response: Yes father (I am guessing mum didn't have a lot to do with this message). I like talking in riddles/code. Apple apple banana strawberry cherry (see - I fooled you with that one, didn't I?!).
Response: Hooray! I'm in Honkers! My brain's a little addled by the travel and the chicken feet/cow stomach for lunch. Ipanema was scorching yesterday (about two days ago). I said goodbye to it for ya. Was absolutely gutted when I left but you can English beer here so not all bad ;o). See you soon my little lovely!
Response: Hi vlado!
It´s really good to hear from you! Having a few probs with computers as well! I´m going to try to updatethe rest of Peru ASAP and then move on to Rio! Am now in Iguazu so keep your eyes open!
Response: Say a big hello to your lack from us, too!
Glad you had a good stay in England. Mate, you should get to Peru/Ecuador - they´re a bloody great place. Get this - Ecuador has a fiesta every week called "San Viernes" (Saint Friday). This is like where you go out on the lash with your mates after work on Friday except, I suppose, they´ve created a Saint for it! How irish is that?! ;o)
Response: I´m glad to see that I´ve created such a good impression of what I have been doing on this trip! ;o)
The only pain with Spanish is that it is very similar to French so when I attempt speak it I end up wearing a beret and garlic around my neck (soz Nico).
Rest assured, things are pretty sweet a the mo´ ;o)
Response: Thanks dad - I´ll be extra careful with any bad language then (as Nana is now checking in on me, too!).
Response: Yeah. I got an answer. They made sure I repeated años about ten times until I had pronounced it right!
I´m glad you and Nana are checking up on me! Hope to see you soon after I get back!
Response: Hey mate! Good to hear from ya. You will absolutely love Peru and Ecuador. Quito is damn good for a party but you´ll get mucho respecto (this is NOT Spanish) if you take lessons before you turn up!
Peru is one of the best places I have EVER been. The beer is cheap, there´s a ridiculous amount to see and do and I think I may have found you a new hobby.
You enjoyed Snow mobiling - have a go at sandboarding and dune buggying in Huacachina. Bloody painful and awesome in equal amounts!
Response: erm, isn´t this the same as the one I just replied to?
Response: Si, Emma y mi tenemos un buen viaje (done without using a flash translation tool) pero yo no entiendo "podéis ir a los lugares que son solamente en mis sueños". Como es significe? Not sure about all the grammar there but I hope the point gets across. Will try to update this at some point or other... Just tried calling you and mum but you weren´t around. I´ll try again when I´m not travelling somewhere... ;o)
Response: Season was AWESOME (directly quoting any number of snowboarding pros that reside in Whistler). Am now sorta living it up in Peru. Keep an eye on the website and yull see what I am on about. I hope stuff went well with the photography.
Response: Hello, me lovely, I hope the Hosteria San Jorge did yuz alright! I´ll have a chat to you when I stand up after doing this answer message thing...
Response: Nah... can´t be... that´d be too much of a coincidence...
Response: The next chapter isn´t written yet!! I´m about 3 weeks behind BUT ít´ll be worth reading when I get round to writing it (I hope)! Will try to keep you updated and, rest assured, I am having an amazing time!
Response: Cheers Whistler buds. Damn good to hear from ya! I am still trying to clear the backlog of messages I have so soz for the lack of response. Hope your trip is doing well!
Response: Pater, dearest. I regret to inform you that the pension you speak of has, unfortunately, taken permanent residence in the third urinal from the left in Moe Joe´s nightclub, Whistler, BC. I would suggest that the proprietor of said establishment would be more than happy to escort you to the urinal and then (rather quickly) off the premises.
Response: Yeah mate - just about! I'm not really an expert but quite a bit better than I was! If you want to be included on emails saying when this is updated, please send me a mail to my gmail address!
Response: Shaun & Claire - it was an absolute pleasure! They are forecasting 10 - 25 cm of powder for tomorrow so sod packing for SA! I hope to see you soon!
Response: Many apologies, Derek - I hope I didn't hurt your feelings.
Last night Luke and Paul left so there's only 4 left in the house, now. It's a little quiet... but their leaving do wasn't (it's why I'm here writing this instead of being up on the mountain today...).
Y'all keep an eye out for updates and I've no doubt we'll bump into you at some point in the future!
Response: No worries mate! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm gonna be back before you know it!
Response: Darragh - glad to see you have had a quick look in at this! I'll try to get some pictures of Maria and you up so that you can wallow in your own glory ;o). I'll also do my best to keep this a little more up to date...
Response: I'm not back yet and doing my best not to think of such things (mid-June)! I would write more but the internet is stupidly expensive in Whistler - soz for letting you down, though!
Response: Sorry mate - was hoping you'd leave a message! I reeeeally hope you're looking better! Keep in touch (unlike what seem to be able to do) and I'll see you before you know it!
