Hi guys,
New!! Can't really claim to have done anything nearly as exciting...EVER! Have had two exams in the last two days. Have had special arrangements made so that i can sit them in college as am not very well. Either got tonsilitus or glandular fever. Not at my best. It's 2am here. Can't sleep so thought i'd see what you guys r up to...SOOO envious! I honestly can't wait to hear all your stories and see your pics. I love learning about new cultures...Moaris sound fascinating!! Might look them up on google now. Not going to sleep. Anyway my lovelies...take care of yourselves, i would say watch out for wild animals although lamp posts appear to be far more threatening (Don't know what i'd do without you Gem!). Love you lots. Ellie aka Golf ball glands xxx

From Jane Golding - Monday, 11th April 2005, 12:35 (GMT)
Hi Hannah and Gemma.

It is great to hear how you are getting on. Hope you enjoy your thai massage and elephant trek. It sounds very cool. How are you coping with the heat out there? It must be unbearable.

God Bless
Jane (& Matt)
aw thankyou. were ok thanks. didn't go for the massage in the end no time. Elephants were amazing though!
From andrew (your little - Monday, 11th April 2005, 17:58 (GMT)
hello my lovely sisters
i probably should have written a message staight away as i am your brother but as you know im not very organised and a bit unrelyable. long sentence. you can tell me off later about the gramma. anyway hope you continue to have lots of wierd and wonderful experiences and enjoy yourselfs. im sure you will. i think were all missing you although quite in the house is quite nice,(no offence) lots of time to practise when i should be getting work done, ha ha. anyway seeing as i put off writting to you for such a long time i thought id make my message very long to make up for it. hi light of my week was going to (Josie says hello and lots of love) willingham on harrys tractor. it was well funny.not really sure what else to say, o paul rad got his mysterious christmas pressie after long last. it was a necklas apparently and he likes it!!!!! wow. sorry about the lengthy message. i hope its the longest so far.

love you loads
yep its the longest. Nice to hear from you matey at long last. Harry'es tractor hey?!? interesting. I think its definately safer than what we've been used to here. Might have a go myself when i get back.

Love ya lots x
From Holly - Monday, 11th April 2005, 20:11 (GMT)

hi jemma / hannah
Great 2 hear bout ur travels! sounds so beautiful! reminds me abit of vancouver. I am meant 2 be goin 2 lebanon at some point, but, dunoo if u knew i had 2 have an operation on my knee last friday, all went well and recovering! have a fantastic time. was it really thought provoking seeing the devestated islands?, take care Lou xx
yeah it was amazing. Its pretty much back to normal but the Phi Phi islands are still damaged. Sorry about the op hope you get better soon
From Lisa - Wednesday, 13th April 2005, 18:07 (GMT)
Hey Hannah. I've been so busy and only just read about your many adventures. Sounds fantastic. I'd love to visit Thailand myself. Well good news. I got my place for the air force. I'm going into healthcare management. SHOULD(so they say) leave on the 7th of june. So I don't think I will see you again before I leave. But you have my e-mail and I promise to keep in touch. Have fun on the rest of you trip. love, Lisa
wow i'm so happy for you! Yeah its ace here. Congradulations sweetie
From Sarah - Wednesday, 13th April 2005, 20:29 (GMT)
I'm glad to hear your having such a fantastic time. It sounds amazing + a real adventure! It's like your in a completely different world. I can tell you that your weather sounds a lot better than ours-we're gettin lots of showers and not much opportunities for a tan, I'm v jealous! I went on the London Eye with Hol + James: it was kinda cloudy, but stil v cool, not as amazing as the sights your seeing tho i bet. We had a lot of fun on the underground (I was a bit scared but it seems nothing compared 2 your tuk tuks!) + eventually got 2 Wimbledon + got 2 c centre court-James was v excited.
Looking forward to reading your next installment. Take care + have fun!
Sarah xx

Hey you lucky ladies. Just a quick message to say that everything is going perfect in the land of South Africa. Just been cramming and cramming for exams. The relationship between me and Sonja is going fantastic. I can't believe that I'm finally in a relationship with a woman that I really care and love about and who cares and loves for me too.

Check ya later,

Hey thats really good news. Been missing our long chats. Only a couple of months now till june. Yay.
Keep cramming. Hope everything goes in

Lots of love and hugs Hx
From Carrie - Thursday, 14th April 2005, 20:19 (GMT)
So good to hear you're having such a good time. Sounds a lot more fun than essay writing and revising....Been missing our random chats is definitly not the same without you around. Hope you continue to have a fab time!!! will be praying for your safety!!
Lots of love and such
thanks babes

Were having an ace time- each day is a new blessing. We're just experiencing so much that is beyond belief
From sarah mac/fandrich - Thursday, 14th April 2005, 20:58 (GMT)
Really fun to read your travel updates. Hope that Gem inproves quickly ---- the downside of travelling is always picking up some wildlife in your tummy.

All is well here --- though I should probably give you a bit of news that I've picked up some "wildlife" in my tummy too ---- Martin and I are expecting a baby in October ---- still feeling rather queasy but really excited (though will we know what to do with it?)

Lots of love and prayers from Glorious Blighty to you both,

Huge hugs,

Sarah, Martin and bump (the start of my own youth group?)
how cool! Gem is fab now
From Steve - Thursday, 14th April 2005, 22:02 (GMT)
Hi there. Really enjoying reading what you are getting up to each day. Sounds great. Sam is working up to a big email on Saturday! We're all fine - a bit green thinking of your tans! Take care and enjoy (?) your tea picking! Steve and Beth
tea plantation was good
will update website soon to tell you all about it.
From Siona - Thursday, 14th April 2005, 23:54 (GMT)
hello my dears,
Gem sweetie, trust you to get ill on the trip of a lifetime! pah, sounds exactly like the sort of thing I would do!
The elephant trip does sound truly amaxing...soft eh? I find that really hard to believe, elephants jst look really rough. I'd probably be too scared to do that, what with them being reasonably tall, and my fear of heights. stupid excuse yes!
My flight tickets to New York came through today apparently (I haven't sen them yet, Tim told me earlier). I am going on the 8th June for 2 wks. Oh how excited am I?! Anyway yes, Gem get better soon. Han go find yourself a hot guy to replace Gem till she gets better. Why not eh?!

Sio xxxx
Maybe not in malaysia! The night life is somewhat intersting round here! Will be probably lookig in oz though- surfer dudes!

Gem's better now by the way. Yay!
