Hi Donna, what a good idea this website is! Wow I am so envious of your amazing time you seem to be having in Dubai with Shiralee, what a place! Loved the story about all the waiters at the Lebonese restaurant, I could just imagine you there, waving at all the waiters! Not long until your next adventure of a livetime in Africa, did you pack the travel diary? See you on the 14th! Love Mel xx
Hi Melanie,
Ha ha, I could imagine you counting and laughing at the waiters with me. Yes, have the travel diary, have been writing in it since Venice (21st Oct). See you on the 14th! Hope you are well. Love Donna X

hey donna,

this is an amazing website! dont know how you did it but so good! love the photos!
Hey Michael,
Didn't know people were still looking at my site... I really should update it a bit more often! Glad you enjoyed the photos. I'll be back in Melbs early May, I'll be in touch and hopefully we can chat up soon. How is Ella? Hope all is well with you. Love Donna X

Hi Donna,
MERRY CHRISTMAS, I was thinking of you on Christmas day and what an amazing time you must still be having! I'm sure it will be a Christmas you'll remember. Your expereince of white water rafting brings back memories of my expereince in Austria on Contiki- I was the unlucky one from our group that got stuck under the raft when it tipped too. In the dark and in the bitterly frezzing water from the Alps, it really wasn't a pleasant expereince- I've never been so cold.
That sounds terrible about your skin, you poor thing. I hope the anitbiotics and cream is working now. Not long to go, see you in a couple of weeks! Love Mel xx
Hi Mel,
All better now. Thanks for thinking of me on Christmas, hope you had a good one too. It rained and rained on Christmas, but it was good to be somewhere so different. See you soon, love Donna X
From Auntie Sandra - Sunday, 3rd December 2006, 00:20 (GMT)
Hi Donna. As you can see I now have the internet. I did send a message but maybe it didn't get through. Am very interested in South Africa as we have been there. Have a Merry Christmas and I'll see you in February.
Hi Auntie Sandra. Yes, I got both messages, it's just that I have to reply before they reach the website... and I haven't had internet for a week! Thankyou, have a great Christmas too. I will be back in Jan. Love Donna X
From Amanda Anderson - Tuesday, 5th December 2006, 02:28 (GMT)

From Ngaire - Thursday, 7th December 2006, 01:56 (GMT)
Hey babes, I am so excited that you patted a cheetah, and that you went sky diving! Your adventures are definately more exciting than here. My adventures are limited to the Nursery being closed because its too damn cold! Ill tell you all about it in an email. 7 days till I'm on a plane and outta here hooray! Miss you heaps... take some pics of the animals for me!! Love N xoxo

Hey D, Firstly I wanted to thank Lisa for the X-factor updates. Keep them coming! And secondly, I can't wait to see your photo's! Sounds like you're really getting the most outta the tour. PS, I'm putting together a mixed netball team in G town next year. You keen? Me, Ali, Redge and you. Got a few guys lined up too! xoxox
Hey mate,
So good to hear from you. Got some awesome photos, esp of the animals. Def keen for mixed netball, count me in. Redge in the netball team, what, why, isn't she living in Melb??? Love you mate, Love D XX
From Mum - Monday, 20th November 2006, 00:47 (GMT)
Hi sweetie, really enjoy hearing about Dubia. give my love to Shiralee.
Have a great time on your touring. Take care. love Mum
Hi Mum,
You did it!! Glad you managed to figure out how to use the website. Already gave your love to Shiralee, she appreciated it. Love Donna X
From Nikki - Friday, 5th January 2007, 00:19 (GMT)
Can't believe I've been so rubbish and this the first time I've read the site since Dubai and now the trip's almost over - sooo sorry- I didn't forget you, I promise, things have been really busy. Good in a way though as I read the whole Africa diary as a proper story. Was insanely jealous up to Botswana but then it sounds like it's been pretty tough. Certainly an experience it seems - I admire your good spirits.

Take care and hope the remainder of your trip is happy, healthy and brings some more amazing experiences.

Hi Nikki,
Yes, second half a little tougher than the first, but all is good now and really enjoying my time. Don't be jealous, you will just have to come to Africa as well! Thanks for the message. How are things with you?? Donna X
From Matty - Tuesday, 14th November 2006, 11:45 (GMT)

Hey Mat,

Hey Donna! I totally envy all these elaborate and interesting "way-home" trips via Africa, North America etc. Beats running out of money and going directly home to previous job! Have bought a flat in Canberra, but still haniging to get back OS. Hope you are well; enjoy! Ben
