only two pics? and one of those is a tree with a dwarf undreneath it! Sack the cameraman.
Gail's fine and home in bed after 24hrs. Keyhole surgery - very small marks. Apparantly the gallbladder was a nasty bag full of stones & grit.
They threw the whole lot in the bin!
I'm contacting Poppy in Sidney to see if she's about and maybe say hi.

Hi Jo, Just read your 1st message. Transport is always cheaper everywhere but u.k. It sounds like you are off to a good start. I am gloing to Barcellona on Sunday for 5 days - not as exciting as your trip - Look forward to the next message. xxxxx Nan & Mike

Hiya, thanx for the message! We're now in the rain too! In NZ, and its freezing! We went out on a boat 2day and saw 5 whales and loads of dolphins which was amazing! No snow left 2 go skiing though which is a bit rubbish. Food in HK is really bland, not like English takeaway! Hope ur well. xxx

From Your Cuz Jess x x - Friday, 29th September 2006, 14:22 (GMT)
Hey Jo, just got told about your website! Really good idea, the pictures are awsome already! I would love to one day go to all these places, you must be loving it! You'll have to convince me that its ok living out of a rucksack for 7 weeks though before I conside it! lol. But if you can do it im sure I would be able to! Main reason for sendin message is to say a belated Happy Birthday aswell! I was looking forward to goin out for your birthday and then Ash said you were in London! you'll hav to take me out another time! Any way just a quick hi! Looking forward to hearing all your stories! Lots of love Jess x x x
Hi Jess, thanx for the message and belated bday wishes :) Havin a brill time. Living out of the rucksack isnt too bad, although repackin it all the time is annoying! And no room for many pressies/souveniers which is rubbish! Sorry about my bday, all my friends were being rubbish and didnt come down so just went to see my bf in London. Will def have a big nite out when i come home!! hope ur well and 2nd yr of uni starts off well. enjoy freshers week! Lots of love, jo xxx
From Mum of Jo (Karen) - Saturday, 30th September 2006, 11:26 (GMT)
it's so lovely to see you both in your photos - modern technology is wonderful. You are still looking remarkably groomed considering how your rucksacks looked on departure! Glad to see you are not starving yourselves - I know you both like your food! Hope you got to cuddle a koala in the Blue Mountains. Have a safe journey to NZ. Look forward to seeing more pics.

Love to you both.

Hiya! Thanx for the message. We did try to look good in the fotos mum, but I think this may go rapidly downhill in next couple of weeks as early starts every morning and very cold, rainy and windy! We've eaten really well so far but still think Ive lost wait (or just toned up)! Hope u keep enjoying the pics, lots of love xxx
From nikki and owen - Monday, 2nd October 2006, 19:58 (GMT)
Hey guys, photo's are amazing!! its funny cos i know where u are but it doesnt seem real! lol

nice to see your gettin loads of messages. sos which had been your favourite place so far??

How long do you have left in new zealand? Did you take any pics while you were out whale watchin?

well take care both of you! have fun, thinkin of you both!! lots of love Nikki

ps owen says hi and he wishes he went to aus too!!!
Fav place=sydney!! We took pics while whale watching but the whales dont come up very much so the best ones are of their tails when they dive :) We're in NZ til 15th. Few people have done the fiji experience and said its really good so we're really lkin 4ward to that (esp the hot weather!). Hope ur both well. Cya soon. xxx
From joanna & Lexi - Saturday, 7th October 2006, 16:26 (GMT)
I have sent two messages but you seem to have had only one. Wehave just come back from Barcellona. There for 5 days, exhausting. I think I walked so much I lost 3 incs. in height. It looks like you are having a great time so keep it up and look forward to seeing more messages. Luv. Nan and Mike
We walked 6hrs on a glacier today so we know the feeling!! Hope you had a good time in Barcelona. Glad your checking the website and enjoying our photos, more will be coming soon! Lots of love, Jo xxx

Lex's mobile is a bit broke so txt mine instead. miss u, lkin forward to a girlie Hooter's nite out!! xxxxxx
From Jo'as mum - Karen - Monday, 9th October 2006, 19:49 (GMT)
I am off to Ibiza day after tomorrow (Wednesday) so will try and text you from there if I can. I will keep looking for more pics and messages on nanny's computer as it seems to be fast enough to view them!! I am going to be even more confused with the time difference when I am in another country now! Hope you are recovered from your cold. Did you manage to go on the heli trip. How is your singing coming along for karaoke nights? Eileen tells me that Queenstown is much more lively. She has been there but avoided the nightlife! be careful on the jetskis etc and just take a disposable camera if you go near any water!!!
Love and kisses from me, dad and Ashley. XXXXXX
Hiya! We're in Queenstown now, so should be fun. Watched some of the people on our bus do a bungee jump 2day-scary :S We're sharing a dorm with some girls for next few nites met a really fun group of people that we hang out with. Cant believe we'll be in Fiji in 4 days tho! Lex and I were awesome on the kareoke the other nite. We didnt do heli hike cos of weather but we did a 6hr hike on the glacier instead!! Was awesome. We're doing jetboating and lugeing tis week. Miss you all loads, speak soon, love and kisses xxxxxxxxxxx
From nikki - Thursday, 12th October 2006, 13:03 (GMT)

From nikki - Sunday, 15th October 2006, 22:04 (GMT)
Hey huns, hope you get this cos i know you sed there may not be electric on some of the islands!! im so jealous of the mud pools in fiji! sounds sooo good!!!

are there any other people travelling that way with you that uve already met?

nothing much has happened back here, just hunting for a better job.

cant believe you've still got another month left, bet its gone quick for both of you though.

well take care, have fun, see ya soon!!!!
I went in the mud pool 2day, Lex refused to go in cos there was lots of leaves and stuff in there, lol. Then we went in hot pools, sooo nice, feel refreshed now before going to the islands 2moro and having no electricity! The weather has been a bit rubbish the last few days so we're hoping its going to brighten up 2moro! All the people we met in NZ are going the other way around the world :( but we met some cool people in Fiji so its all good. Only 3 weeks left now then back to get a f/t job :( Hope u get a better job soon hun. Take care, cya in a few weeks xxx

From Karen - Thursday, 19th October 2006, 16:17 (GMT)
looking forward to you cooking us a fijian meal when you get home. Have you been to the Love Island beach yet? Does Fiji live up to its idillic reputation? I expect internet access is not available on the island but will keep on looking out for any new photos and messages.
continue having a wonderful time, soaking up the sun and experience of the islands.
Love and kisses from your envious mum.
Miss you.
Hugs and xxxxxx
We saw where they filmed Love Island, its on the main island not a little one. Also our bus driver worked on the show! It is nice here but we've had a few days of rubbish weather, hoping its going to brighten up cos we're going to the islands 2moro! Cant upload photos here so will do it in NYC. I went in the mud and hot pools today which was really cool. I've been bitten 2 death tho :( Hope ur well. Love u lots, miss u xxxxxxxxx
From Phil - Friday, 27th October 2006, 09:05 (GMT)
Hi Lex,
thanks for your Fiji e-mail, I got it ....5 times obviously too much of that Fiji dancing and wine!!
You must be ready for the London marathon with all that excercise you've been up to. The weather has been fantastic here we've had the swimming pool out, and surprise, surprise it filled up all by itself!!
When do you get to NY ? is it sunday? Haloween should be a scream, watch you don't bump into FREDDY.
Oh by the way don't forget to tell everyone about the best website in the world for learning to play a song on the piano without reading music. especially your friend in NY who works for the mag. Who knows we may be able to give you a job. We'll need some legal representation.
Stay cool
Phil, Gail, Evie & Elliot
