Hi guys,

Sounds like you are having an interesting time to say the least. GLad you made it out alive on that plane flight - sounded dodgy to say the least.

Had my birthday last Thursday and about 16 of us went to tappas in the Valley. Luke and Kam were there as well. No tarantulas for them that night. Ended up in the casino for a while.

Been doing some international flying to NZ for 5 day stints which has been a bit different to what I am used too - bloody kiwis!

When are you due back Rob so we can play some golf??

Stay safe guys

Trent (Natalie says hi too)
Flight was quite fun and reminded Rob of the time he flew with you many years ago!
We will be back sometime in mid march

Thought I'd get in first and wish you guys a Happy Australia day!! Spose you'll be smashin beers at the Lake Titicaca Walkie!! Have a goody!!
Hi Matt,
Tried to find a Walkie at the top of Machu Picchu but they haven´t quite made it there yet. May be a business opportunity!
Hope you had a great Aussie Day.

If you get up to Ecuador, see if you can catch a cruise in the Galapagos. Totally mindblowing and amazing wildlife. From memory you can pick up standby rates for 3-4 night cruises in Quito or Guiyaquil (forgive the spelling). Trust it is is worth it.
Sounds like you are having fund. It is probably too late but make sure you get up to Machu Picchu really early in the morning before the first train and mass or tourists arrive. It is worth staying overnight in the village below just to watch the sunrise with no other people around. Completely different experience to that of the afternoon before with hundreds of noisy people around.
Hi Tania,
Galapagos is one of the must see things on the trip. We plan on spending a few days on the islands as well.
Machu Picchu was amazing and we did manage to get a few photos before the tourist arrived. Lucky it is not peak season.
Hope everything is going well in Brisbane and can´t wait to catch up when we are back in March.

Amazing photos Richard Whatisface could be in trouble. You know the pommie on TV. You must have some amazing stories to tell. Will look forward to hearing them when you return. Stay safe Love Peter & Jan
Hi Peter and Jan,
Rob is hoping to get a job offer from his photos! Plenty of stories and photos to keep everyone bored when we return!

Now why does Rob getting plastered, hiding his money and c cards, then forgetting he'd done so and declaring they were 'stolen' not surprise me in the slightest???
Top work RM!
It was quite an effort! Let´s just say Kel is now in charge of the card, money and passports!

49K hike... are you guys crazy?!?!? But looks like the scenery along the way not to mention the destination made it all worthwhile... also its good to see that the universal backpackers breakfast of pancakes is alive and well!!

Have fun guys...

PS if your interested its been sleeting in london town and barely above zero. I'm doing a 5K 'fun' run in it tomorrow too. Now that IS crazy!
That really is crazy - at least we only had cold rain to worry about. Hope London starts to get warmer soon!!!!!! We will think of you while we sit on the beach in the Galapagos!
