Response: Hi Christine! Hope you're well. Thanks for your message. I got back to Edin on Friday & trying to see as many people as possible before I head back to Sydney on 6 Jan. If you're through in Edin at any point over the next couple of weeks let me know & we could catch up. If not, we will def catch up when I get back for good next year. Hope that you have a great Christmas & NY and send my love to your family. Love Susan x
Response: Hi Alex and Pat. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your message - we have not been in the website much recently. Been busy with working and trying to see and do lots of new things while we are leading our new mini life in Sydney. That sounds a great trip that you and Rhona are going to do. I will need to meet up with you before I come back to Sydney and tell you all about Laos and Thailand. I hope that you are both well. Take care, Love Susan xxx
Response: Hi Laura. Really great to hear from you! Sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your message - as you will see we have not been in the website for a while! Hope that you had a great birthday. Vicki said the girls were meeting up for your birthday - hope it was a good night. Can't wait to catch up with you on 16 December for the girls' night out. We had a meal down at Darling Harbour the other night before going to the Kylie concert - it is really lovely down there. May try to visit Canberra when I am back in Sydney in January. Take care & I will see you soon, Lots of love Susan xxx
Response: Hi Alex & Pat. Was a nice surprise to get your message - thank you! I hope that you are both well. We are enjoying Sydney just now but I am looking forward to coming home for Christmas. Hopefully I will catch up with you when I am home. That would be good to meet up with your daughter and her husband next year sometime. Thanks for the advice on Melbourne! Hopefully we will make it there before we leave Oz to head to New Zealand. Anyway, take care & I will see you in December, Susan x
Response: Hi Kenny. Thanks for your message! It is great to hear from you. I hope that you are settled into your new home. Look forward to seeing it at Christmas time. Did the Bridge Climb on Tuesday - it was excellent! Take care and I'll see you soon, Susan xxx
Response: Hi Becky. Thanks very much for the message. Sorry for the delay in replying - we have been so busy recently. We were on Fraser Island camping for 2 nights getting back yesterday and then we went kayaking with dolphins this morning which was amazing. Glad you got your birthday card and had a good birthday and holiday. Will be in touch again soon. Take care, Lots of love Susan xxx
Response: Thanks very much for your message and for my lovely birthday card! Thanks also for your email. I will send you a proper reply to it when we are next near internet - we are going out in the bush from 6am tomorrow (camping in swags under the stars) for 3 days! Hope that you are all well. Will be in touch again soon, Lots of love Susan xxx
Response: Thanks Louisa! Had a really good birthday - had a night out in Kuala Lumpur on the Saturday before my birthday, had a nice meal out on the night of my birthday at our hotel on the beautiful Tioman Island and then opened my cards & pressies at Francis' house in Singapore on the Sunday after my birthday so it was good! Missed seeing my family and friends though. Hope that you and Ross are well & school is going ok this term. Not long until the October break! Take care, Love Susan xxx
Response: Hey John
Afraid Susan and I haven't seen Good Morning Vietnam but it's been added to our (ever growing) list of films to see when we come back. Just as well we'll have lots of films to watch as we certainly won't have any money left after this trip!!
Response: Glad you liked the postcard. You'll have the most amazing time there!! I'm desperate to go back with money and an empty suitcase!!
Take care Vx
Response: Hey Jo

Send my love to M&D and the girls.

Response: Hi Louisa & Ross. Thanks for your message! Glad you are enjoying being off school with the good weather. Was thinking of you on 23 July - can't believe it has been a year already since your wedding! We are still having a great time. I'll email you Louisa when you are back at school. Take care, lots of love Susan xxx
Response: Thanks for your message grandma - such a nice surprise! It has been difficult to find an international phone where we have been the last few days and I have no mobile reception so I will call you as soon as we get to Vientiene (the capital of Laos). Missing you loads and can't wait to speak to you soon. Love you, Susan xxx
Response: Hey Kimberly!
Good news is that you aren't so technologically backwards that your message never worked ;-)
Have to admit don't envy you being stuck behind a desk but don't want you thinking it's easy getting up everyday having to think about where to eat (always have my tummy on my mind), whether to sit in the sun or go sight seeing!
Speak to you soon LOL V x
Response: Hi Ruby
Good to get your message and glad to hear you are enjoying reading about our trip. I would never have thought that we'd have so much fun but we are and hopefully it will continue that way!
Response: Hi Maggie & Norrie!
Thanks very much for your message - really good to hear from you. We loved HK too - just a shame we couldn't do much shopping there! As you said, it was nice to get somewhere a little less hectic as the streets in HK were so busy all of the time! We are having an excellent trip. In Laos just now where the people have been so kind & friendly. That is great news that you are moving back to Scotland! Would be great to meet up with you when I get back - I can bore you with my photos! I have added you to my group email distribution list. Take care, love Susan xxx
Response: Hey Uncle George
Not sure if you are my Uncle George or Susan's?! Either way it is good to hear from you and we're glad you're enjoying reading about our adventures.
Love V / S xx

Hope you are well. Was nice to get your message. We're in Hong Kong now trying to avoid the shops so that we don't spend money! It's so amazing here. Skyline is stunning but prob not as good as Edinburgh!
Spk soon. Love V xx
