Hi Ange and Jeff
I can't even imagine _35 degrees, how can you breath?
How were the new year celebrations? You must have been right in the midst of them? Food sounds interesting! All good here - have the 50th on Saturday. Take care
A couple of times it's been a bit scary with the fingers/toes...soohh cold! Just got your email with photos of Bronnys party, first time I've felt a tad homesick, but I'll get over it pretty quick!!! xx

Keep an eye out for this banana bender because you may cross paths,
I have been following his travels for some time and met him in Albany a couple of years ago, he is a good bloke. Enjoying your travelogue.
Hi Ted, you will see from my reply to Richard that unfortunately we probably will not cross paths this time, although We will wait to see from his response to my reply. glad you are enjoying the travelogue. J.

Wow - just caught up with your travel diary. Sounds amazing and pleased you haven't had to do any road repairs along your bus journey. It does sound like there's lots of eating and drinking. Cheers
Hi, haven't had to get out and push yet or dodge falling rocks in landslides!!! Been great.

Hi Jeff & Ange,
Sounds like you guys are having a good look around Vietnam. Hope you got yourself organised for the Thet Holiday. Good luck.

All good Grum, we fly out to Beijing tomorrow, if the airport hasn't been snowed out! Very cold and snowing there at the moment! I think we may just miss the 'worst of it' fog TET. We saw the Kings funeral procession on the news last night, how are things in PP? Hello to your 3 girls, how is the diving progressing? Cheers.

Happy 25th wedding anniversaray - sorry I missed it yesterday. sounds like the trip is going well - I'm impressed you're able to keep up a daily log - it's fantastic! Will read it all over the weekend - back to work and certainly no rest for the wicked! :)
Thanks. At times we've done a couple of days at once but it's good because we can just put the appropriate date. The free WiFi has been great so far everywhere. That may change in the next few weeks!!
From Mum - Sunday, 20th January 2013, 01:37 (GMT)
Have just read your travel diary
at Maryann's. Sounds great, so many different trains, buses etc.
They were talking about Cambodia
on the radio this morning.
Hi Mum. Glad you're enjoying it. Cambodia is great, incredibly interesting place. Xx
From TravellingStrom - Tuesday, 22nd January 2013, 14:53 (GMT)
Hi there

I am a friend of Ted and he mentioned you may be in the area, I will be in Cambodia within 5 days or so and sending a few weeks there, if you are in the area still, it might be cool do meet up.

You can see where I am by looking here

Hi Richard,
It is 7 pm Cambodia (and Vietnam time) and we are sitting on a floating restaurant at Chau Doc in Vietnam ( waiting for grilled Mekong shrimp, BBD'd squid, rice and garlic spinach) We arrive in HCM city tomorrow evening and stay there for 3 days prior to heading north on the train. We will depart Hanoi on 6th February. Do you have accommodation in Phnom Penh?
From Bronwyn Galea - Thursday, 24th January 2013, 06:47 (GMT)

Hi, great to hear from you. Yes it certainly has been an adventure & we're only 3 weeks in!!Today definitely tested the patience! Enjoy your time with Fran & Cathy.xx

Hello Audrey! Poor thing, you must be back at work today, hope you enjoyed your break with the kids. xx
From Maryann - Sunday, 3rd February 2013, 08:59 (GMT)
Not long til your milestone birthday. Where will you be? All the Feb birthdays are about to start, better get a supply of cards and stamps. Grace is 1 same day as Louise's birthday so a double celebration on Sat. Luke back on Friday with sooo many clothes, dvd's and of course a tailor-made suit. Sounds like flying is the preferred option to the local bus/train.
Fly to Beijing on Wednesday. Big 5-oh on Thursday. Glad to hear Luke home safe and sound.xx

Hi Jeff and Ange. Stop it Kim. I'm sure that little bloke has pushed 70kg before lol. Just getting my singing voice in preparation!! Keep enjoying yourselves and keep safe xxx
Hey Deb, you should have seen the calf muscles on that dude!!
