Response: Thanks Mother dear, glad your enjoying it. Love you too x
Response: The next one is KL mother dear so don't worry. When I do Kuching, I won't dwell on the sadness. xxx
Response: Hi Annie, great to hear from you.
Im so glad everyone is enjoying the blog, its a bit hard to discipline myself to sit down and type (hence I'm a little behind) but I think it will give us both something nice to look back on, and everyone at home something to feel a little closer.
The boys in Kuching was a very sad thing indeed. We paid our respects with flowers and lit candles. If you go to the bbd website and click on the "world" tab at the top, you should still see the article. there is a still shot of us lighting the candles on the mail page and a video shot of the same in the main video link.
Hope you and Dave are well
Response: Well i'm glad to hear that your enjoying reading it. But are you saying it needs proof reading. I must admit, I haven't checked the last few entries as I just wanted to get them online.
Anyway, I'm enjoying writing them so thats two of us that are happy.
Response: Hi Mother dear. Glad to hear your enjoying the read. All other followers seem to have fallen away. Maybe I bang on too much? Anyway, thats a good idea to print off. I shall make a book of it when we are done so we'll have a nice keep sake. Anyway, just so you know, you question only appears when I respond to it. A few more posts to follow, just working on them now. xxx
How's it going Jimmy meeeeet!
Yea mate, it's great hay. We've met soooo many cool people. Our group in Trincomalee has now split up and moved on. Sad day, we all got on really well. But, we will meet again on day.
It's the 14th today, we've been away for 5 weeks tomorrow. It's flying by.
Speak soon mate xx
Response: Hi mummy.
I can only write when I'm in the right mood, but when I am, I can't spot. I think thats part of the reason it's not up to date with where we are. That and the fact that Sri Lanka has the wisest internet in the world! All over the island. Xxx
Response: We are here we are here!!!!
I have write ups for kandy, dambulla and Sigiri which I will post today. Trincomalee was a blast, we met cool people so it was hard to find the time to sit on my mac.
Enjoyed the Skype the other day!! Xx
Response: Ha, I'm not sure what bit is funny, I forget after I write. But this is good, planet ranger is our memory too.
And, by the way, the TukTuk driver would soon bring her back.
Response: Hi Helen,
ohhhhhh how I miss the smell of ink and paper. Well, not really actually, we're having far too much fun. Glad you like the blog, This is the best thing we've ever done! Lovely to hear from you. x
Response: Sim, we made a right cock up today. We we're offered two elephant places to go to. We picked the millennium elephant foundation. I had a funny feeling not to go but I didn't want Jess to miss out for me being a tree hugger. As soon as we paid and walked in, we both new we had made a mistake. 3 elephants chained up round the feet and neck with a keeper shouting at them with a stick with a hook on it that he prodded them with if they didn't so as they we're told. Needless to say, we left shortly after. That cost nearly a days budget so we were quite pissed off! We will do the orphanage another day though, it looks amazing. You live and learn ay and I'm sure we'll have many more mess up days yet. We're still having a great time though and getting on great. Sri Lanka is a pretty funky place. Hope your all well. Xxx
Response: Hay buddy. How are ya mate. We are heading to Singapore, Indonesia and maylasia before Thailand but if your hanging about, we might catch up. I'll give you a shout when we know when we'll be there. Nice one
Response: Hi mother dear. I am very behind on the reports. You'd think we'd have all the time in the world wouldn't you but it's not turning out that way, we're quite busy all the time. It's great! Colombo wasn't our kind of place but, (we we're the only westerners we could see) it was still good and interesting. We are in Kandy now which is more of a happening city. Still not many westerners but we like it. It's not as humid here either. Colombo was only mid 30's but it was around 78% humidity. Not plesant for Jess to smell me. Miss you too xx
Response: It was truly amazing and I can't believe I'm saying this but, worth every penny!!! We are now in Sri Lanka surviving off £25 a day between us. Extremes ay.... And still loving it all xxx
Response: We are here!!! Cape Town was so busy, we just haven't had time to sit down and get things updated. We had small amounts of time in Kichaka but we were so relaxed, waking up to do anything was proving tricky!!! Hope your all well, we miss you too xx
Response: You would not believe it, on the last drive, we came across a pack of lions that had a fresh kill. A baby cub came out from the bushes to take a look at us and it was like a cuddly toy. Amazing!!!! Glad to hear of the shark talk, it must be in the blood. Miss everyone loads.... well, a bit ;-) xxx
Response: Hi Annie,
thanks, glad you like it. Its a bit unsteady but its kind of hard filming in that situation. Yes, I am lucky to have her, she's great!! xx
Response: Well Boss, you were the inspiration for this trip so thank you. Pleased your enjoying the blog. When I wake up from this relaxation, I will post more but for now, I must eat again... Then sleep.... then Safari... Then drink... Then sleep again!
Response: Kichata is totally amazing, Im finding it hard to think about writing! But, more will follow. More than likely when we're in a grotty backpackers again x
Response: We are on the hunt for a Cape Cobra for you. We shall keep you posted xxx
Response: Azza, you would love it in there. They were amazing. And I was sea sick, nudge nudge, wink wink xxx
Response: Does that mean your bored to tears with my waffling? xxx
Response: My sister, you are here!!!!
Great to here from you and thanks for the positive feedback. Do I not woffle slightly? I guess the nice thing about reading what I'm doing, is you don't have to listen...! Ha.
Of course scuba diving has given me a keen interest in the oceans(obviously) but, from the bigining o my memory, sharks have always been around, through you. So thank you.
Loads of love
Response: She is a bad boy that auntie Jess.
Thank you for the message Alfie, your typing in super!
We have one night in Port Elizabeth, then off to 5 star luxury.
Response: Hay Judith, its Darren.
I've posted a few items this morning.
The internet is a bit of an issue out here, photos are taking an age to upload. When we get to Kichaka, we can leave the mac uploading in the day while we're out. Sadly, everywhere else, the mac comes with me as I don't want it stolen .
Hope you an John are well
