Diary Entries

Saturday, 05 August 2006

Location: Berlin, Germany

Hello all,

Amy and I have left to come home. Hopefully we have timed our run to perfection. A nice warm holiday in the northern hemisphere followed by Summer at home. It hasn't gone unnoticed by some that our return coincides with what looks like a grand final with Collingwood involved. Can't wait.

These latest pictures are a bit of a jumble but I hope you can see what we've been up to for the last few crazy months.

Tomorrow we head for Dresden in the east of Germany. After that we go to Munich and then on to New York. From there we have another 5 weeks in Canada and spend some time in Hawaii before coming home.

We will try to keep up to date with this site as much as possible while travelling.

See you all soonish,

Dave and Amy

Location: London, England

Well as the song goes we are ' London still'. We are in the last two months of our journey here and have mixed feelings about leaving. Of course we are excited to be coming home to the lucky country and are eager to start a new chapter but we will be a little sad. We never intended to base ourselves in London but it has treated us so well. We have been so lucky with our jobs, met some lovely people and loved, loved, loved travelling off the pound.

The last few months have been especially exciting as we have had lots of guests (Amy's parents, Phoebe's parents and now Dave's parents) so it has been 'all go'. Soon we will have Peta come over and hope to catch up with her also if not here in England, perhaps over in Amsterdam.

We have 6 weeks of school remaining. We will tie up lose ends here then head home via Germany, New York, Canada and Hawaii. If all things go to plan it should nearly be a double Summer, bringing us back home in October... or if Dave has his way back in time to watch Collingwood in the Grand Final!

With love,
Amy and Dave

Hello all,

This is my first diary entry. I won't be writing too many details on this site. I will try to let our photos do the talking. Feel free to send us a message now and then as I will be checking the site regularly. Either Amy or myself will get back to you as soon as possible. Okay bye.

Hey guys love the photo's. Glad to hear you are having such a good time.

Not sure why Amy had to kiss the blarney stone, wouldn't have thought she needed the extra help to talk !!!!!!

Loved the photo of your 'cubby house' flat.

Dear Amy and Dave,
It was good to see all the places you have been to. I liked the picture of the big waterfall.
Can't wait to see you.

Love Daniel
Response: Hi Daniel,
The waterfall was pretty special... the cliff in the background is supposed to look like a kilt (skirt that Scottish men wear).

See you soon buddy.
From Kristen
Dear Amy and Dave,
I can't believe that you ate snails Dave, thats so gross. I love your wellies Amy. I hope you have a safe trip home.

Love from Kristen
Response: Hi gorgeous,

I'm counting down the sleeps till your birthday! Dave says he can't believe he ate snails either, he got caught up in the moment.

I miss ya both heaps. Glad to see your having so much fun. Love those gumboots Amy, there a keeper.

Response: Not too adventurous? They go alright in Notting Hill. If you give me the thumbs up I might just build the confidence to wear them at home... pity we don't get any rain.
From Jo
