Wow, what a beautifully written, enlightening blog! I must say, you succeeded at dispelling the myth and preconceptions people have of this place.

Thanks very much
Thanks for the compliment, really appreciate it. I'm probably being out of order here but I've prostituted myself and have begun my own blog site. If you have 5 spare minutes, would you be able to check into www.thegreyglobe.com There's already one small piece on Zurkaneh in Iran. Thanks for reading and keep in touch.

Oh, so glad we just turned 60!
Am hoping this doesn't put us in that nearly dead category yet! Was glad to read your blog as I usually relate well to your sense of humour and insight. Just a bit worried about that pre-heaven vision!! Off for a week for a joint birthday present. Promise to let you know how it went, have been very dilatory with updating our final trips of last year.

Somehow I missed this last blog...
as I have been following your entire journey which has been fantastic. You can always do China once you get your new passports...not that far from Oz. Anyway, it's been a great ride. I look forward to your next adventure.

Thanks again
Thanks for tuning for so long. back in the real world now for a couple of months. I hope you get your hundred nations up in the near future. I'll keep watching your space.

What is this
I m turkish and the pictures and the discribing reminds me of what happened to turkey when they filmed midnightexpress .... I live in istanbul and i never been to iran but i do not think it is as you discribed ,what is your reason to put animals picture ? is that the on ly think that you sore or what?

Sorry you didn't like it.
I think maybe you misunderstood the crux of my story. I was very flattering of Iran, surely one of the more fascinating nations on the planet. If you read the other comments, pretty much everybody thought I presented Iran in a very positive light. As for the animal photos, they tie in with one of the stories I wrote on Tasua. By the way, I love your country which is an example of how a primarily Islamic country can function effectively through tolerance. I did a blog on Istanbul a few blogs prior to the one on Iran.

28th February 2013

very nice one
Hi to erverbody! We have been to Hikkaduva in Feb. 2012, we stayed at the "moon beam", nice one but I think too expensive! But it was close to the beach and the very best extremly closed to "Ranjiths", I even don't now if you knew the 3 brothers and the location?! Extraordinary Hollidays for 4 Weeks, we rent a bike for the hole time, the countryside is unbeleavabel!! We also have been to India , Rajastan, Goa, Kerala, but I think up to now it's too crowded!! My Girl and me prefare SriLanka! You have to excuse my englisch, it's indeed not perfekt! best Regards from Colon/ Germany

Your English is fine
Seeimg as I don't speak German. As for Ranjiths, he's been there since I first went to Hikkaduwa in 1980. It's a great place.

Wow!
What a ride, you two! Appreciate you allowing us to share your experiences along the way. Amazing trip and though we may not be near as adventurous, we do want to hit many of the places you visited. Thanks for the updates and God bless you both down under!
20th February 2013

Thanks for that
Right now it's payback time. Trying to move back into the house which isn't in as great a state as we left it, putting it mildly. Still, nice place to come home to. I trust we will be crossing paths again somewhere sometime. I'm already looking forward to it.

I shall miss the little witticisms and charming insights
Also, I quite like the two lions clutching a shield on my passport, they make minced meat of emu's and kangaroos ;) Although, the particular ones on mine probably not, as they have faded away to nothingness, can't even read which country I am from anymore. To ensure an extra life, be good but not too good, or else you will go to nirvana. Don't be too nasty either or you will revert to animal form in your next life. It is a delicate balance.
18th February 2013

Very witty.
We cant even claim that emus and kangaroos are smarter than your average lion. With heads that small and bums that large in comparison, you just know they have to be stupid.

Mr Ideasman
Oh yeah, another Mr Ideasman! We would get on so well together... welcome home! We are acclimatising since our return three weeks ago and finishing up the blog of course.
18th February 2013

thanks Meryl.
And thanks for tuning in so long. I hope we cross paths one day on the road, or even back home for that matter.
