Galapagos envy
Just been catching up on your galapagos trip and looking at the amazing white sandy beaches. Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Glad you survived the crazy bus journey! If you get a chance when you're in Cusco I'd recommend searching out Los Ninos hostel in the old town. I know you already have somewhere to stay, but it is a little quiet oasis of tranquility. Ideal for a cool beer and yummy homemade snacks (pancakes etc) in the inner courtyard away from all the hustle and bustle. Looking forward to trhe next exciting installment. love, Fi x

I have never tried Andino cheese - is it made from goat's milk? but I have eaten empanadas when we were in Argentina - scrummy and you can get sweet and savoury ones. Look forward to hearing about the Galapagos. x

Eco friendly hostels
Hi April Glad you have arrived safely in Ecuador - I think you should make a study of eco hostels around the world - we stayed at a superb one in South Island New Zealand called Beaconstone Eco Lodge (again a recommendation from Dunc and Fi). Then you could write a book and never have to work !! Anyway enjoy - lots of love Ali xx

Ecuador and the lovely Black Sheep Inn
Wow April sounds amazing and I am very envious sat here at my desk on a grey and dreary feb morning in Blighty! I'm really glad that you're having fun at the Black Sheep Inn and think it was worth the trek to get there. I seem to remember those self composting loos being rather nice, as these things go. Michael Palin claimed to have found the best view from a toilet on Tiger Leaping Gorge, but personally I didn't think it compared to the one you're looking at. Can't wait to hear more about your exciting adventures. Lots of love, Fi x

Pity the weather wasn't better in Samoa - it does look stunning. Did you get your passport stamped? I don't expect there are too many British people who've been there. Love Mum x

Very envious of Sunny Days
Looks like you've developed a wonderful even tan now, despite the champagne rain. Moral of the story - always carry a bin liner in your bag. Love you xxx

Fab to see what a wonderful time you're having. Bet you wonder why you ever felt anxious! It's lovely to see the pix of you in Sydney and at the Three Sisters, know them well. See if you can get a gozleem at the Sydney market (it may only be Sundays, so you may have missed it). But if you can they're the most fantastic turkish 'snack' (like a hot filled flat bread). I've never seen them anywhere else and our aussie friends introduced us to them. I recommend the spinach and feta ones, make sure you put the chilli and lemon on! Take care my lovely xxxx

go intrepid traveller!
Lovely to be able to hear all about your travels April. My hubby had such a great time on his trip to Camboia and Vietnam (on a bicycle) and has often said he'd like to take me....I am thinking I should hold him to this, having read all the exciting things you have been seeing and doing! I hope you keep on enjoying your travels. Sue
