It was back in September 1996...yes...long time ago...I had my economics university degree from Louvain in my pocket...well kind proper work experience...well...kind of too.... First point to remember, I grew up in Luxembourg...this little wealthy country in the middle of Europe. Why is Luxembourg so great...because in Luxembourg people don't strike, people work....and ...

Thanks for sharing a bit of your history...
it helps to get to know you better. And thanks for your wrap up of Asia. Have a great time in South American, and make sure you blog more than once per month. We like reading about your adventures.

Asia is my home, the world is my garden
Well--that says it all, doesn't it? Loved the time line. Your blogs always crack me up with a good use of humor. Life is short and meant to be enjoyed....glad you have the kids. We await your exciting South American adventures. Hopefully, our paths cross again soon.

I understand that Luxembourg is a tax haven and a very rich country. Perhaps if some of the large companies operating in Britain paid their due tax to Britain instead of through tax dodging using Luxembourg, people in Britain might be a little more sanguine about austerity. However, good luck in your new life, hope it is rewarding and exciting, a wonderful opportunity for the children!

Hi Bridget
When we speak of tax heaven...don't forget that people in Luxembourg do pay income tax...and not specially low ones. I do agree with your comment on "dodging" taxes....but that's clearly not what is making Luxembourg's way more than that...

Hi, I was glad to see another email of your travels pop into my inbox, I always cherish reading them because I like vicariously through you, as I'm sure thousands of other people do too. :) Your can-do attitude has inspired me to take my 11yo daughter around the world for 4 months at the end of the year. Life is short, we don't know what's around the corner so now is the time to live. You don't know me, we've never met, but just wanted to say thanks for continuing to blog and I look forward to reading more of (our) life adventures. Cheers, Jan Australia

Bon voyage Peter, Lesley & Tiffany...and don't forget to continue to smell the roses...ahh...another chapter in your life adventures awaits...hope its a cracker!

The world is your garden - love it!
PA..I have always wondered about your story. How luck Leslie and Tiffany are to have a father who has not only the world as his garden, but the joy in life to go out and play in its jungles, what an amazing gift you are giving them. As a fellow explorer of the underwater gardens I often have read your blogs wondering..where did this lust for life start? Kai Tek airport LOL! The first place I lived out of Australia was in Kowloon in 1986 so I can feel how big a start out that would have been. Travel well and thank you...looking forward to more of your adventures.

and one day...
....I will have you showing me or us...the best diving around day...

Bye for now
I look forward to following your travels for the next year and a half. I also hate people who leave inappropriate comments without a name or email, cowards! The least they could do is own up to their comment so I could respond and we could discuss the topic like adults.

Well...the best is most of the time comments are actually out of topic...on the personnal side...I know friends who have stopped to blog because of such silly comments...I won't...just make me want to give it a little zest of salt from time to time...

Have fun can't wait to hear about the adventures.
